This book helps you create greeting cards, custom notebooks, clothing and posters. For additional inspiration, the book includes a CD with 200 motifs from the artists. In recent years, printmaking - and screen-printing in particular - has been experiencing a huge renaissance among crafters, designers and artists. The popularity of designer printed fabrics, limited edition runs of tees, art prints and more has fed the interest and encouraged crafters to want to learn the basics themselves. This is the first screen-printing book to hit the market that features techniques, projects and motifs from a variety of artists. Each featured artist provides not only 15-20 of their own designed motifs, but also a project or two that teaches a core technique. Examples include overprinting, screen-printing text, painting your prints, creating high contrast prints, using alternative exposure methods (like cyanotype) and more. After digesting a thorough basics section, readers can choose their own printing adventure, pulling inspiration and techniques from the book.
