pears tea towel ... printed at last!


... at last ... my falling pears tea towel is printed! I was playing around with different settings for the photos this afternoon and thought it would look lovely hanging from one of our ornamental pear trees in the backyard. I just love the green - such a nice, fresh colour. I had actually half printed quite a few of these a couple of weeks ago, but they got a bit wet ...


Anyway, I really enjoyed printing my first two colour design ... especially once I'd worked out a little template for my table to ensure the registration of the two colour components was the same each time ...


And mixing ink colours is always great ... doesn't this look yummy enough to eat? OK, maybe not!


Anyway, the new pears tea towel is in the shop and on etsy now!
See you tomorrow for my creative space with Kootoyoo!

Wonderful!! How about strawberries next?

Nice work! It's funny that you mention it looking good enough to eat - I often think that about my inks - chocolate, creme, strawberry icing etc... maybe I just think about food too much?
