What to Yudu First

I had a wonderful day at the markets today helping out Ellie from Red Seed Studio at the Young Designers Markets at South Bank Brisbane...very inspiring!! I will do a post about some talented Brissie designers tomorrow, i just wanted to post about the designs i am working on for my first Yudu screen.

A design based on a water lillie/lotus flower

I am cutting out shapes from black vinyl and sticking it to a clear plastic sheet - like you would use for an overhead projector. The black areas will block out light and create the design in the emulsion.

A variation of Bee Girl and her pet butterfly

Bits and pieces

I am going to do multiple designs on the one screen and just tape off the design that i want to print to save emulsion and screen space.. So i think i will be ready to burn my first screen tomorrow. Not hurrying coz i want to get it right! Exciting!
