more screenprinting

i had a blast at my screen printing class. here is another image i put on a few pieces of fabric. this is on a t shirt. it consists of green and purple dye, and i just dolloped the ink and dragged the squeegee across. wasn't sure how it was going to come out, but i am pretty happy with the results.
this is one i put on a piece of muslin. i will applique' it on a later date.
this i put on blue denim. i used white ink and the excess left on the squeegee. it really popped off the denim, no?

screen printing class

took myself a screen printing class this weekend. didn't know the first thing about it, but i knew i wanted to try it. sooooo, here is the image i used as inspiration:
this is with screen filler on the screen. keep in mind, i didn't paint in the stems, i am going to sew those to whatever fabric in print on
the reddish stuff is another type of screen filler. this dries, and then you use a hose to wash out the blue stuff.
after you get rid of the screen filler and the screen dries, you can print. i used a few colors here, and came up with this sort of burnt orange. i printed it on muslin
this i used yellow and orange for contrast::::
i will be sewing in stems with pretty green thread, so it will be a mixed media type of thing. i had a great time in this class and highly recommend anyone to try it. more pictures later
