Describe your style of art and materials you like to use?
A few years back I used to paint with soft pastels only. Recently I've become interested in mixed media and art journalling. I am interested in Ancient Stone Circles and have found a Celtic Knotwork Font program which I'm looking forward to incorporating into my art.

Hello Brenda and welcome to LMM !!! I have been here since early December and have been enjoying myself sooo much! You are going to love it here - there are people who create all sorts of art. But beware, it can be addictive! lol I look forward to seeing some of your work when you are ready - HAVE FUN !!!
So once i have my image printed onto transparency film, I take my Ezscreen silk screen which has been coated in light sensitive emulsion (These sheets come pre-coated so they are ready to use). Place it onto a black board, then place the transparency image on top (this part needs to be done in a dark room with no direct sunlight). I take it outside and expose it for 1 minute and 40 seconds (but time varies depending on time of day and strength of sunlight). After i have exposed the image i place it into a tub of water for around 5 - 8 minutes. Then i rinse the screen out under fast running water until the unexposed area (the black) washes away. I then expose the screen to the sun for a further 20mins to completely harden the light sensitive emulsion.
And this is the completed screen ready for printing. I simply use an old credit card to spread the ink over the screen making sure i do one complete full stroke across the screen (holding the credit card at a 45 degree angle). I immediately wash the screen out under fast flowing water and pat dry. I use fabric screen printing ink which washes out in water (which makes the process easy).
I love this product, their website is http://ezscreenprint.com/ (for full instructions and details on how to purchase this awesome product).
