Textile Design: Mastering the Basics

Last weekend, I taught myself to screen print with the help of Lena Corwin’s amazing book! As an artist working in the world of design, I often wish to have the ability to design my own textiles.

The first print I tried was using a simple stencil. I cut out the deer pattern using my exacto blade. You can see a messy picture of all my supplies: squeegie covered in ink, painter’s tape, spoon, and screen printing ink.

Here is what the screen looks like after dragging the squeegie across one time.

Voila! Some of the fruits of my labor…

and this set of mix and match Tea Towels

It’s amazing how you can come up with an array of products from a single print!

These items will be in my Etsy shop soon:)

Today is shaping up to be an active rainy Monday. I am working on a lighting installation all day and can’t wait to share the photos. I will keep you posted.

Lourdes Sanchez: Watercolor Inspiration

You may be wondering where I have been, (lately I am reading more). I have some book recommendations, if you are looking for pure fiction!

I am working on a wood panel artwork for an art benefit December 10th. The event called 11 x 11 is a fundraiser for the arts and is created by Michelle Berc of CreateFixate.

These inky watercolors by Lourdes Sanchez have been right up my alley. Watercolor is a medium that never fails to appeal to me. There is something about it’s aqueous quality that I just love.

I have abundant projects and ideas I hope to materialize over the following months, some involving watercolor.

Which one is your fave?
