I spent the morning screen printing, a good activity for a damp, dreary day. Above is the polka dot bird on a lovely khaki cotton. I picture it as the lining for bags and totes. Below are some sweatshirts which I screened with the Otter Lake Canoe Company logo and the polka dot bird.
I liked the look of the logo so much on the sweatshirts that I decided to experiment with it on wood. I had no idea if the image would take on the pine, but it worked beautifully. The plan is to make storage crates and smaller boxes with the logo on one end. My next trial will be screen printing on leather–I think it would be fun to make leather pouches with bird graphics on them.
Those sweatshirts are sharp! And neat idea for storage boxes.
Happy New Year!!!
You are off to a very prosperous beginning. Love the birdie shirts too!!! And the fabric – there is something so crisp about white on that nice khaki.
How did I not know about the Otter Lake Canoe connection. Right across from our lake (Salmon) is Otter. It is a considerably larger lake that is actually on the map. I guess there are only so many lake names to go around.
