Whew! Just sliding in under the radar this week. So, rather than my usual lino carving for week 18, I decided to try out this technique. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to try out screen printing.
I found a beautiful photo of black cohosh and, with its simple lines, I knew it was the ideal candidate for this project. As you can see from the image above, my screen went all loosie goosie after being rinsed but I can assure you it was perfectly taut while printing.
I see a pretty little tea towel on the horizon.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great weekend!
