Blooming

Hi everyone,

When it's winter time it's so nice to play with colors and flowers, even though spring and summer are still far far away. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge it's all about incorporating flourishes into your project. Anything from flowers stamps to stencils, from filigree to embossed. Let your creativity bloom.


I grabbed my art journal to work in and to make something colorful. When I heard what the theme for this week was, I immediately thought of my logo. A while ago I did some screen printing in a graphic workshop my neighborhood. I printed my logo in many different colors and sizes. It's all printed on fabric.

 

A tip for when you start with screen printing, always use a medium that ensures that the paint does not dry immediately, because then it dries up the screen and it gets clogged. For example use  Claudine Hellmuth Extra Time Slow Dry Medium. I used regular acrylic paint, and to make it washable in the washingmachine you need a medium such as Ranger Fabric Medium.



I started by putting some Washi tape on to the seam to ensure that nothing is leaking through.Then I go my Pure Sunshine and Bubblegum Dylusions Sprays and sprayed with a few stencils. The used the color combination of yellow and fuchsia ​​with a few black accents.



Over time I've collected a whole bunch of different washi tapes. Currently I have 43 of the. There are a few clear favorites, such as the Black Polka Dots, Dictonairy and Black Basics.
