it´s T H E weekend of the year for this region at least for those with the carnival gene, which I´m obviously lacking
instead I took a trip to the rummage and adopted some nice pieces for almost nothing.
- 2 chairs, not sure from which decade, maybe fifties/sixties (?) anyway I like the shape of armrests
- a little etagere/cake stand
- a small mirror with velvet covered back and golden lace
- and a large pinboard with a strong wooden frame (a little corner of the board reflects in the mirror)
also in the mirror: todays easy peasy 10 minutes craft project:
a holder for earrings, made from wooden sticks, cord and wooden beads
after talking with Anne about screenprinting this week, it was time to give it another try today....
I made a screen from a wooden stretcher, a piece of small meshed polyester curtain from the fabric store
For bringing my image onto the screen I used screen drawing fluid and screen filler. A cardboard envelop
was my substitute for a squeegee.
Not perfect yet, but with more practice it could work at least for simple designs.
If you like to try it too, here you find a detailed tutorial with a nice printing result
