Pretty Pair

This year I want to try and make more progress with screen printing and develop my work. So as well as using different colour combinations I have also introduced gradients to my prints. My first attempt was alot easier than I expected. I mixed three versions of the background colour varying from light to dark. I used all three on my screen and although the first few prints were striped the inks quickly mixed so the gradient became much more sublte. 

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

A new bird design hatched late last year. Since then I've been using it for a number of different products including winter greetings cards and festive bird decorations. I particularly like the combination of gold and teal coloured inks, they worked well on ivory card and even brown kraft card.
