sticky stuff

A few months ago I bought a Xyron create-a-sticker machine. I finally had a chance to make some stickers! I scanned the fabric prints I made a few days ago and played around with the images in Publisher. Then I printed the images out on copy paper and some on card stock. The last step was cutting them into sizes to feed through the 5" capacity of the sticker maker. Turn the handle and voila stickers to peel and stick! The machine came with 18 feet of sticker material so I expect to customize my all sketchbook covers and still have plenty for future projects!

Printing Frenzy!

 First a little sketching, then block carving, and on to messy fun of inking!
 I used Speedball screen printing inks on linen and even some velvet!
 The dots and over printing were big fun! 

 I just couldn't stop, so I got out some of my older blocks and printed with them too!
After these dry and are heat set I will start stitching with them!
