I've been enjoying some sketching this weekend in preparation for next week's Screen Printing class.
Last week we started on colour alignment - printing a 2 colour design and aligning up the second colour on top of the first. We used a design that Gina brought and next week we are to bring a 2 layer design of our own.


My sketchbook is full to brimming of all sorts of doodles and designs and I'm trying to narrow down which I will do next week. I think I'm down to one of these 2.


Again, I'm trying to not get too caught up in getting the perfect design, but using something that will allow me to experiment with the process.


I've drawn the second layer on tracing paper and I actually love seeing the design split in two. I am excited about next week's class and experimenting with a 2 layer print and looking forward to experimenting with more of the designs in my sketchbook.

Fun, fun, fun...

It looks like you are having really good fun. I am looking forward to doing some screen printing in the not too distant future (time permitting!!!).

Hello, I just wanted to say that both sketches are lovely, I especially love the dotty one. I've been sketching this weekend too, but my drawings are to be layered with glass, I would love to master the art of screenprinting...
