1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: yearbook/scrapbooking swap on: May 20, 2008 11:21:00 PM
i am confused about the actual relation to upcoming yearbook signings and old scrapbook supplies?

i would be in, cos it would only cost shipping, and i have ALOT of stuff i know will be useful, but i dont have a use for....
whoops! sorry, i put no correlation between the two.
this swap is open to everybody, but i just got the idea since yearbooks were coming out soon and sometimes people like to decorate them to look like a scrap book page. yearbooks are in no way a requirement haha
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / yearbook/scrapbooking swap on: May 20, 2008 11:14:56 PM
so with yearbook signings coming up, i was wondering if anybody wanted to swap any old scrap booking supplies they have. im sure all of you have those few pages of scrap booking paper you have NO IDEA what to do with, but cant dare throw away, or those one or two extra embellishments/stickers that you bought because they were on sale but never used... come on, you know you all do it  Wink
therefor i propose a swap where we can get rid of all these things and get new stuff! it'll be an easy swap that doesnt require any major crafting or time and best of all, you can get rid of stuff you already have!
so... is anybody in?  Smiley
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / i can't reclaim my screen! on: October 25, 2007 06:55:15 PM
i burned my screen yesterday, but when i washed it out, the emulsion didnt turn out right, so i tried to reclaim it... but its not coming off!! a majority of it has already washed right out of the screen when i put on the chemical remover, but there are certain areas where it isnt coming off at all! it might have been because i used old emulsion (10 months old =X). im freaking out because i this is my nicest screen! can anyone please help me? ive used bleach and the chemical remover already. Sad

for the second question, i use a floodlamp and take off the glass. it sits approx 1-2 feet away from my screen... maybe1.5 feet and is 500W. i expose mine for about 7 minutes i think. possibly more. i hope this helps! i do everything in my bedroom.

Good luck with that. I know there's some art supply stores that carry sticker paper on rolls that you can by by the foot. However, if the surface is slick, you're going to need a special kind of ink that will stick to it. I know it's possible, but if you don't know where to get the right inks and the right papers, it can be troublesome and expensive. Why not just go with one of those sticker machines that you can get at Michael's? Wait till there's a nice coupon in their sales flyer and it might make it affordable. Because then you can print if off the computer, on whatever paper you like, and run it through the stickermaker. It's a lot less mess, and probably faster.
yah i have one of those! but a mini one. its a xyron. its so cool! but as for the vinyl stickers, i knew i was out of luck anyways. i was just curious to see if anyone else had any success. how about for stationary? do i need a special kind of heavy paper?

i was looking around on-line, and there are a lot of companies that silk screen shirts, vinyl stickers, window clings, etc. and that made me wonder if i could make stickers too... does anyone know how?

those came out really nice!! i like them!

are you talking about how the corners did not come out like the middle? maybe the light didnt reach the corners of the screen, or wasnt as "strong," so the image didnt burn as well there. did you wash the whole screen out well? it still came out nice though! i wouldnt have noticed if you didnt tell me

i think it's that it didn't burn out as well. 

are there problems with leaving it under light for too long during the burning process?
yes there are, but i am not too familiar with exposure time. all i know is that its better to over expose than to under expose (but its better to do neither  Wink). maybe you had some shadows...?
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / first attempt at silk screening on: February 12, 2007 05:53:38 PM
here is my first attempt! i made shirts for my club, aowakya. the shirts say "i <3 akasa arai" which is our brother club, and the paw print is out logo. i dont have a picture of the shirts only, but this is a group pic of some of the girls in the club:
i couldnt wash out all of the letters though, so we just passed it off as a "vintage wash"  Roll Eyes
