I found a speedball screen printing kit in someone's free stuff pile (!!) last summer and today was the day, I wanted to make a messy polka dot screen. It's pretty old so I don't know if the emulsion would be good still, maybe it would be, but the screen filler seems fine. It would be fun to have a dress with this print on! Maybe neon pink on wheat or gray coloured linen...
I really want to go to City of Craft this weekend! I am not sure if I will though, as it would mean bringing Finch and that sometimes goes well...hmmm...I'll have a think about it anyway. It's always SO inspiring!
I uploaded my final Shapes book drawings this morning! Yippee!! I have one week before Christmas holidays, to myself. I do have a few things to do, vacuum maybe, but I also want to chill out a bit! It has been non stop since school started and, phew, I just need to take a breath.
Check it out, last week Finch was home ALL week with a cold, but by friday we were going nuts so I took him downtown to the Christmas windows at the Bay.
It was nice to go. I grew up here and had never ever visited them. Finch was impressed, but not as impressed as he was by the surprise toy train set up at the bloor/yonge subway station in a little display window by the southbound platform. He LOVED that. We were nearby, so we visited daddy at work too.
Here's a pattern I made by playing around with a cool painting Finch did of CP and CN freight trains.
