It's Official!

Yesterday afternoon I got the call from the jurying committee at the gallery. I'm in! Thanks to everyone who crossed their fingers (and toes) for me, and for all of the good vibes that were sent my way. Next is an orientation meeting to meet the other artists at the end of September.

And from the studio...
these are some fun new postcards that I made this week. I started with a watercolor background, added some tissue paper elements and a piece or two of cloth, then finished with some screen printed text. I started with 12 postcards, and I was happy with 10 of them when I finished. The other 2 designs taught me a lesson or two, which is also a valuable use of supplies.

That's wonderful! Doesn't it make you feel good? I love to start off a day with news like this.
And those cards are really pretty too.

Now that I really look at those cards, I realize I'm not sure how you get the screen printed text. Is that some process you do for yourself, or is that a supply of some sort?

The text on these postcards was printed using thermofax screens. Some of the text is from old family letters, and some of it was done on my computer.

Ah...thermofax....i've read about that......*S*

It looks just beautiful on those cards, that's for sure.

Thx for the quick response.
