I just made it up myself.  Did some searches online and gathered some alphabet  and border charts and then just put it together as I stitched.

After taking a very long crafting hiatus I finally got inspired to make something.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Family Tree en espanol on: March 24, 2007 12:27:07 PM
I want to make my boyfriend a family tree journal that he can complete himself.  The catch being that he is from guatemala and his first language is spanish, so I would really like to make it in spanish.  This presents a problem because english is my 1st and only language.  Any idea where I might be able to find a family tree template in spanish?  It would be much more special if I could make it completely in spanish (and correct spanish) but I really don't want to ask  him for help since it will be a surprise.

Also I've never really done any book binding and would greatly appreciate any tutorials or references.

45 minutes.  it all depends on the size of the screen and the wattage of the bulb.

Those are absolutely fantastic. Perfect images for the prints. Did you use a start up kit, or buy the materials from separately? Congrats.

I bought a beginners kit a long time ago.  But over the course of the last couple months I had bought some screens and a better squeegee.  My friend told me that a lot of the ease in screen printing really has to do with the quality of squeegee you have and that seems to be true.

as far as preparing the screen, it's pretty easy with the photo emulsion.  you just have to work a thin layer of it on both sides of the screen.  basically just enough of the liquid until the screen in covered.

the images i just manipulated in photoshop.  converted them to grayscale, increased the contrast and then converted them to a bitmap.  once you do that you get a couple options for output and the chandelier i just did at a 50% threshold.  photocopied them onto transparencies and then exposed them on the screen with a regular ole' desk lamp (with a 150W bulb).

so recently i've been attempting to learn to screen print.  i have had the equipment for months, but for whatever reason was too intimidated to try.  that is until one of my friends showed me how easy it really was to use photo emulsion.

here are the first couple shirts i've printed:
