A mostly wet day with very little at the end of it....this painting produced and a wincing large amount spent in hobbycraft.

And a bit more printmaking....just for fun

This photo isn't great but I made a butterfly stamp out of children's foam. 

Home screen printing

Over the last few days, I have been trying out my home screen varying degrees of success. After an initial attempt that put a hole in my screen from scrubbing with mr muscle, I bought the speedball cleaner and am now much happier. I have learnt that it would be better to use a standard size paper for aligning the image (next time I will do this!). I think I would also go for a rectangular image next time as well. I have enjoyed the process although it seems extremely long winded. I will definitely try to design some more images for screen printing in the future.
