I just love silk screening! I love the texture that is created when the paints are forced through the screen! i also love it that one can create original designs. I'm sure in time I will tire of this new toy, but for now I love messing around with it.........I found this wonderful, really shabby, window over the week-end. I really liked that it had old white paint on the window panes and when I looked at it I knew instantly what I wanted to do with it. The fern and Queen Ann's lace stencils were made from some prints that Dawn, from the Feathered Nest blog site shared with us. They were exactly what I was looking for! Thank you, Dawn! The birds and nest were already in my file of SS. stencils.....I'M GETTING READY FOR A GARDEN & ANTIQUES SHOW AT THE ICE HOUSE IN BARRINGTON, IL. IT BEGINS APRIL 22 ~25, WITH A " PREVIEW NITE " ON APRIL 21. THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS NITE'S EVENT WILL BENEFIT HOSPICE. ...I will be sharing a large greenhouse room with friends and fellow dealers, Janice Kempf and Diane Passi. They are very upscale dealers, so we should have some wonderful, wonderful antique and garden curiosities for customers! If anyone needs more info, please e-mail me.
