screen(print) shots

Popping in to say hello.  I'm busily working the night away, but I wanted to share a few shots of my newest screen print designs.

I used to do screen printing all the time - but I took a break during my pregnancy and it took a long time to get motivated to do it again.

This is the first time that I've created my own illustration - I used to only use imagery from vintage kids books.  These illustrations took me hours - I am no artist, so I'm pretty thrilled with the final drawings.

These are all test prints that I did on scrap fabrics.  (Sorry these photos aren't up to my usual standards.  I snapped them last night before I dragged my butt to bed.)

I'll be using these images (and a couple more) in some of the new products I've been working on.  I hope to be able to share photos of some finished projects very soon.

Don't forget that I need your help with the Book of Secrets project!  I already have a few submissions.  I'd love to see what you come up with!
