New prints (and an old one for luck)

'Tugs to the rescue'


Paaaaarp! - has a bit of embossed detail that you can't really see unless it's well lit, or sunny (some chance), sometimes I wonder why I bother...

'Around the world in 20 snowglobes with Elvis in a gold suit)'

Tree Houses

(thanks to Pat for modelling)!

scribbles are the sea

more pictures from the drying rack...this time I've been unleashing my inner Robert Motherwell and scribbling...scribbles are the sea in my ships in embossed bottles print. It's been fun overlapping layers of colour, ahhhh the joys of screenprinting.

here's a close up...

I almost preferred it when it was just the sea...

and finally...this is how I should be travelling to spike island!!

finished it - whoo hoo!!

hurrah - after another print-athon weekend I've finally finished the snowglobe print - "around the world in 20 snowglobes (with elvis in a gold suit)"...thought I'd keep the title nice and short!!

this is my favourite bit, though I have managed to take a picture of the only one where Mr Kong doesn't have fluorescent orange eyes (all the better to see you with).

next will be the embossed ships in bottles all starts here

escape to devon

cream tea with side order of wasp

we went to devon at the weekend to escape the late night golf leafing madness that's been taking me over recently - more on that at the end of the week, hopefully The Print will be done and dusted by then...i feel like there should be soothing music to go with the devon pictures!

screen printing weekend

I'm recovering from an epic weekend of printing at the Spike Print Studio...why oh why did I start with such a complicated beast of a print...hope it looks ok when it's finally finished!
