Screen Printing and Hand Carved Stamps

Missing sleeve, still under construction

First time Screen Printer

I am screen printing on a denim jacket I had cut out in the Fall. Yes, it took me that long to finally construct it. We are tea party crazy over here. I did a freezer paper stencil ( tutorials all over the net) , then screen printed in multi colors,then covered it in fabric glitter.

Serging the edges with "rainbow" thread gave me a different way to look at constructing because I didn't want to hide the seams. I am not sure if I will like the finished product, but it is giving me practice in screen printing and serging.

Making mistakes Serging

I am serging on knit, I needed to adjust, but found I liked the loopy, ruffly edging. So, I left it.

Another look at my shadow work in progress

Some Hand Carved Stamps I've Made

So much fun to carve out these stamps! I could do this all day. I ordered them from Dicks Art supply and also a carving tool.
