So day 2 was just as wonderful! Michelle Allen, another one of my favorite people, whom I’ve known about for ages and all her amazing designs, I didn’t get to meet her until last year when I took her class,”What’s your story?“. She is so fun and full of fantastic energy. Such a great teacher too!
The class I took with her this year was “Hoop de Silkscreen“. She did a similar journal book cover class last year with silkscreening and I was so envious of what everyone made. I am so happy that I took her class this year! Silk screening is always something that I have wanted to try. I see silk-screened t-shirts and totes in my future.
Here is my screen. I wanted to combine things that my guys like: bikes, owls and play and the bee because they are always buzzing with activity. The crown & heart represents me.
The print onto fabric turned out really fun. I painted the background with blue paint and hope to add some embroidery and beads to it someday.
And here is Kate with her piece. She made a gift for her friend’s new baby boy, Walker. Cute eh? (she’s Canadian so I have to throw an “eh” in there – hehe). Kate and I had all our classes together. Totally not planned. Kinda crazy, eh?
