Thanks to Flossy-P for this week's theme, and for making me confront some guilt.
I bought this photo emulsion kit at least a year ago, possibly 18 months ago. At the time, I thought how exciting screen printing would be. I researched online tutorials, searched for inks and mesh, bought sheets of acetate to run through my printer. Soon I had all the kit ready, the last piece I needed was the photo emulsion fluid to make my screens.
It was so exiting when it arrived in the post, I read the instructions, panic started to set in, I put it away safely... and it's still safely in my craft cupboard. Good old insecurities! I realized once the emulsion is open it has to be used within four months: what if I don't get enough brilliant ideas in four months? What if I can't make a design brilliant enough to make multiple copies of? What if I suck at screen-printing? What if I suck at everything?? (**pauses to breathe into a paper bag**).
Now that I've confronted this again, time to get out a calm pencil and paper and come up with some decent designs...
