Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I just finished this screen printing project for my fiber class at school. Took 7 hours of hard labor to get it done, not to mention the prep time before hand getting the screens ready. It was based on juxapositions - I wanted to do something fun. The total size of the fabric is approximately 2.5 yds.

Here's the first layer, a lightish pink done in a half drop pattern.



The second layer, and part of the third (I almost forgot to take a picture oops)



And final layer of black detail, a closer shot



And an overall  Smiley



I've love to hear any thoughts or comments. Thanks guys!

EDIT: I had a chat with my teacher and she thought some small embellishments would be great, so I came up with the brilliant notion that of course there would be some flamingos that thought they were better than the others. Of course! Here's their beauty shots  Smiley







And another fun arty shot

I don't even like flamingos - but this is awesome.  Are you planning a project with it?

I haven't planned anything specific with it yet, except maybe taking a small chunk out to do a hoopla with.

Wow that's cool! I love flamingos but screen painting itself is pretty amazing too.
