Buzzing on a Creative High

10PM (last night) -- Eeeee!!! Dancing around the house because I've FINALLY got this screen printing thing down !!!! I'm no pro, but I'm. having. SO. much. FUN. Discovering & setting off on this new voyage. Imagining all the places to go with THIS process! Giddy like a school girl over here.

3AM -- Can hardly sleep. Having dreams about screen printing the walls of my house.

9AM -- Awake... And still dreaming about screen printing.

3:30PM -- Playing with some more images. (Have I mentioned how infatuated I am???)

 Writer In The Window (print available here)


These are just a couple of finished pieces so far... The Writer in The Window is inspired by our recent trip to Savannah... Rose is a limited edition, I won't be making much more of her (if any.) I'm going to make some new screens this week & play around with thinner lines & WORDS! Wa-wa-wa-wooordddss. I'm so over the moon! And this is only the beginning!

Also on the agenda is finally listing the Originals of all the new artwork from the past couple of weeks...

Happy Monday my friends. I hope your week is off to a good start.

Carissa & all her Roses

    Screen printing is not easy (so much can go wrong, so GOOD for you!!!). It's nice to read about your passion and your creative high. I just love it! Your excitement is inspiring!

  3. EEE. Isn't it fun?! I screenprinted 2 girls I'd drawn all over things before I washed the screen for more fun times. I haven't done it in a year, tho...maybe I should pull that thing out and play!
