Lynn K DVD project examples

win a copy of “Thermofax Screen Printing Essentials”!

So I realized that it’s a little confusing about the giveaways that I’m hosting for the DVD (meaning I think people thought the previous post announcing the blog hop was where to comment) so here’s the deal – if you commented there you’ll still get in on the drawing. I’m giving away THREE copies of my DVD, “Thermofax Screen Printing Essentials”, in order to create even more paint flinging junkies to keep me company. (We are a mighty tribe. Messy. But mighty.)   Here are some of the projects that are created during the DVD to get your Art Brain excited:   Leave a comment on this post with what your favorite color is and you’ll be entered into the drawing. I’ll announce the winners {…Continue Reading}

“Thermofax Screen Printing Essentials” DVD blog hop celebration!! Woo!

  To say that I am elated about this DVD is a total understatement. Think of Art Brain jumping up and down and squealing and throwing paint everywhere. That’s how I feel every time I take a gander at the cover. Thermofax Screen Printing is the technique that really set me on my way to becoming a Paint Flinger. It’s a truly versatile technique that isn’t limited to fabric – basically if the surface sits still and isn’t breathing, you can print on it. And in order to help it on it’s way out into the world, this week is playing host to a blog hop featuring all different kinds of artists. You’ll definitely want to stop at each one and visit in order to {…Continue Reading}

DIY coloring book project for Faber-Castell design team

I’m part of the current Design Team for Faber-Castell, which thrills me to no end because I do love their products. Being part of the team means putting together projects with their products and I had an absolute blast with this one. I created a mini DIY coloring book from their mixed media boards, PITT pens and artist crayons. Full details on how to make the project can be found on their blog here. Here are some photos of the project – totally fun!!!   Be sure to hop on over to their blog for directions on how to make your very own mini DIY coloring book!

screen printed ATC swap – want to play????? :)

Last week when I was doing some tidying in the room I refer to as The Warehouse (samples, shop items, packing supplies, possibly Jimmy Hoffa are all in there), and I came across my collection of ATCs from many years ago when trading was all the rage. I hosted several swaps personally and absolutely loved everything about it. So I’ve decided it’s high time to host another. And because I’m a screen printing geek and because there is going to be a massive party next week on the blog celebrating Thermofax Screen Printing, I thought I’d center the theme around the technique. Now you do NOT need to use Thermofax Screen Printing. You can use whatever method of screen printing you like. So don’t feel {…Continue Reading}

Lynn K week 12 detail 3

weekly pattern wednesday week 12 reveal

Details about Weekly Pattern Wednesday can be found here.   What I did for this week’s pattern is a little different. It’s mostly a lead in for what is going to be happening on the blog next week. We won’t be doing our regular Weekly Pattern Wednesday because there’s going to be a week long party of art making going on. Woo! You’ll have to come back to find out what it’s all about but trust me when I say you’re going to have a great time! These ATCs will be part of it and I’ll just leave it at that. I’m fascinated with repeat patterns and after thermofax screen printing the white bird, I worked on patterns around the edges. Super quick and fun {…Continue Reading}
