Printing: Three Roses Red - Mats

 

 

Three Roses Red

 is a little extra Valentine’s project.

It’s a screen printing piece.

That’s right,

I finally broke into my  screen printing pack

Is that the one you bought last June?

That’s it.

 

I tried  Louise’s screen printing workshop

at the Craft & Quilt Fair, and loved it so much

 I bought one of her kits.

Nice. What have you made?

Tablemats.

They were for Valentine’s day,

but I forgot to post about it

 

Doh!

These things happen.

 How does screen printing compare to

block printing?

I haven’t done much of either, but

screen printing is definately out in front

at this stage.

Why?

The finish is better.

Less pre-school.

But isn’t it more involved?

Not really,

especially if you use a ready made template. 

 

Simply print, scalpel, screen print.

 

 

In no time you have two new table mats for

that extra Valentine’s Day.

 That explains your stylised roses then.

Did you think they were my own design?

As if!

(you crack me up)

 I have just noticed that your roses match

your napkins.

 I made those too.

In fact,

I chose the fabric for my napkins first, & then

found a rose template to match.

Napkins & tablemats – nice work!

Why thank you.

 Screen printing – the way forward!
