rummage sales and rearranging

proof that i really have been working on screen printing stuff...

although, i didn't do what i wanted to do with it today. it's too humid and i don't have a dehumidifier, so i have to wait till tonight to coat the screens with emulsion.

i went rummaging with my mom and bought a couple of little things:

2 of these red patterned linens. i'm going to put them in the bedroom, i think.

a roll of old german wallpaper. i'm going to make envelopes and perhaps a journal cover with it.
i also got the yellow duvet that's under the roll of paper. it's a little faded, but it will do.

when i got home, i felt like rearranging my housewares. i don't have very many things, so it's not that easy to just switch them around. i decided that the coffee table needed some reading material, so i put some readymade magazines and a craft book in a serving tray.

i've been working on designs for my prints, as you know. photoshop would really help right about now. but i don't have it, so i have to make do without.

i wish i could tell you guys what my first print is going to be! well, i suppose i could tell you, but then it wouldn't be as fun to show you when it's done. i can say that it will be partially moroccan inspired and there might be some yellow in it...but that's about it!

well, time to go clean the house.

take care, friends!

It'd be so nice to see the german wallpaper on one of your lovely journals. Happy weekend to you!

Hee, heee... printing in the heat! Just as you are grappling with the humidity and stickiness, we are dealing with cold mornings and the ink becoming stiff on the roll.

Happy creating!

I love that red pattern linen and the wallpaper, they look folk-inspired. Can't wait to see your Moroccan pattern.

Ah, I thought I had already commented on that post... my apologies. It's been such a long and hectic week. g xo

Have you tried to just use big fans for blowing air around? Dehumidifiers aren't always required provided you can get a good air exchange going on. Cheers.
