Screen number one is an old detergent screen. I bought it more for the condition of the screen (for reuse) than the design, but then it occurred to me that an old detergent label might be interesting on a tea towel (just for me). The screens contain finer mesh than I normally use for fabric printing, but are able to be printed onto fabric. The combination of the yellow ink and the course linen resulted in an OK print. If I print it again, I will use a darker colour.
Screen number two was a label for shampoo. Again, I chose it for the condition of the screen, but it has a nice little flower design. I masked out all of the ugly shampoo related text so that I was left with just the flowers.
This time I chose rose red ink to print with. The design is quite fine, but printed well onto fabric and even better onto (recycled) cardboard. I think I will be printing a few cards with this pretty design.
All in all, it was $10 well spent! Wishing you all a good week (especially if you're starting the school holiday
