what a day....I woke up around 6 am and found lil misfit a bit warm...my heart sank :(...she's down with fever...arghghghghgh but no other symptoms, most probably the 5 days fever virus again :'(! So I was late to our last class, but luckily, it hasn't started yet.
We learned swiss repeat today and it was so very interesting and definitely something I will definitely try in the future :)...but I'll most probably using autoCAD instead of cutting and pasting :p...my hands are sore from drawing, copying, cutting all those d*#n little flowers and triangles, and pressing the squeegee up and down. I decided not to make the circle on the flowers...now that it's done, I kinda regret it...ow well...at least this time around, my pattern is not as horrifying as my first attempt last week :D.
I definitely love the class and would recommend anyone interested in stencil screen printing to sign up :)...It was so fun and didn't even realize we were 1 hour behind schedule by the time we were done. 10.30am -5.00pm felt like an hour (literally). I wanted to take more pictures but was too occupied to do anything else. Lara was an excellent teacher and a lovely person. Thank you for the insight and lesson...I had fun :)
