This is Today / 10

Today is for making things! Actually, this whole week has been unintentionally focused on creating outside of my computer. Stepping away from my computer has been a welcome change considering most of my work days and free time are spent staring at the screen.

While these past few days have been about making paper (for class), sewing ticking stripe/duck cloth placemats (finally), baking cookies, and sketching, tonight was all about screen printing. My friend had this incredible idea to create makeshift screens and after one hilarious trip to Blick and a day figuring out the process of applying the screen filler, we finally printed tonight! There was a certain surprise element about revealing our prints each time we applied the ink. So fun and actually pretty easy. I can't wait to print more!
