On my desk.........
On my desk,well actually the kitchen table as the kids wanted to be involved, is one of my new purchases from Melbourne. The ever popular Print Gocco. The kids wanted so badly to see how it worked and they had some kind of day off school today so after hounding me for a considerable amount of time I relented. I put aside my nervousness and did it. It is one of those things, it looks way more menacing than it really is. I think it was the idea of imaging the first screen and not stuffing it up that was worrying me but in saying that I had read the instructions several times and was quite confidante in what I had to do.
After deciding what we were going to do which was to be their party invitation. We got started. We had a photocopy of our drawing in hand, blue screen, printmaster frame all set to go. Then we made the screen, printed the first one with apprehension and after that it wasn't so bad. Quantity of paint we thought would be an issue but I just put a bit on and thought I could replenish if need be but it was all good. I liked it and can't wait to do some more. The kids are going to finish their invites by colouring them and making them their own little piece of art.
