- Miss Eliza Screen Print
My first foray into screen printing
- For my first adventure into screen printing I had lofty ambitions, but they fell by the wayside as the reality of homework came into the forefront. So I decided on doing something a little more 'practical.' I run my own book blog, Strange & Random Happenstance, and often I have the need for cards or various ephemera, so I thought I would just turn my blog logo into a screen. The logo original derived from a combination of vintage silhouettes, but it is still very close to my heart. There is nothing better than cats and books!
I did want a little something extra, so I added some type as a sort of background for the image. That way if the screen lost some of the letter's crispness, it wouldn't matter. The text I chose was from Westley and Buttercup's first kiss in 'The Princess Bride' (book not movie). It's been edited a little to fit, but I think it worked really well as a silver background.
Overall I was really happy with how my first attempt went, and am looking forward to doing it more, especially with the expansion of the print opportunities at school.
