While you are reading this

Today I am just getting all revved up about the MidSummer Maine Workshop starting on the 22nd. I know that was this past Friday but I wanted to have something for this week. So while you are reading this I am downloading and editing all the photos from the event.

To get into the spirit of the workshop, Marcella, my trusty co-teacher, wanted to make some aprons for the participants. I cut a mylar stencil with tiny manicure scissors and made a nice stencil. I tried it out on my favorite "art" shirt. The top you see is clean but further down it is covered in old paint, dye and ink. I LOVE this soft chambray shirt. Now I love it even more.

I think I might have a thermofax screen made.

Thanks for reading,


  1. I LOVE your stencil. Your bird is wonderfully birdy looking, as opposed to a simplified generic bird outline. He/she looks opinionated and full of character.

  2. Ooh, can't wait to see the pix! And your stencil is wonderful! I haven't done many stencils, but have the materials in case I get the urge. Looking forward to your posts about the workshop!

  3. Looks great! It inspires me to make some stencils!


I love hearing your comments. Thanks for visiting
