I stumled over your YouTube Channel...I think your awesome, and such an inspiration. I have been a "junk" collector for years, and repurpose anything that looks interesting to me...I Have alot of talent, but I'm all over the place with my "Art". I see things that people are making and selling, and I think "why am I not selling my art". I tend to follow boutique trends, and can always find a way to make a profit from that...but, it goes against my love of real art.
Describe your style of art and materials you like to use?
I seem to have a bit of everything in my studio, from fabric and paper, to paints, mostly watercolor and acrylic, encaustics, crayons and pastels...scrapbooking supplies (although I use that more for altering projects, than I do actual scrapbooking), decopauge, sewing, jewelry making, and repurposing found objects, including old furniture. I love vintage, and anything to do with the ocean and beach. I have a severe lve for maps.

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).
