Decontructed screen printing results!

We had guests here to visit my uncle and for cake and coffee today and it was all I could to keep from rushing them out of the house so I could get to my screens...LOL!

All set to get started -- I was sooooo excited and I had nine screens ready!

Off to a good start, I think...

I was really happy with this. I have plans for it already, but I need more like this!

Some of these were not so thrilling, but like Rayna says in her book -- you can always go back in and do more with it.
I don't even know what I was thinking.
Black on pink??
The only time you see that in real life is at Victoria's Secret... :)

Needs more maybe...or not.

Kind of cool patterns from that really fugly table runner

Was pretty happy with this.

This was from the leaves.

This is growing on me.
I have no idea what it was, except I do recognise some sequin waste.

Not what I thought it would be, but I still like it. You can try to plan for a certain effect, but I think it's really just like a box of chocolates...(fill in the rest)

These are FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing. I haven't worked with those dyes yet. My studio is my dining room, so I am very jealous that you have the room + 9 screens. My favorites are also the top ones. Looking forward to seeing what these become.

Thanks Ann! My DH built the screens frames for me and we put the mesh in with that rubber stuff that's used for putting screens in doors.

Thanks, that's my favorite too Vicki!

Darcy -- anytime you're around Cleveland, I'd love to have a fiber playmate! :)

Boy oh boy! I don't check in here for a few days and you are just a printing machine! LOL!

Everything looks great! Well done!

Rayna will be teaching at Fabrications this year in Kalamazoo, MI - not too far from you. :)
