Beach House Pillows
Lettering has always been problematic when silkscreening. Hand cutting a stencil full of words is nearly impossible and photo screens are messy and time consuming. My new Cricut is super fun and makes the task simple. I just type out what I want to "say" and let the machine cut out my stencil. I use contact paper...the hardest part is peeling it off the sticky mat that comes with the Cricut and not stretching the letters out of shape. I made pillows today...one or two for Ryan's new house, one or two for the Hawaii House and maybe one or two for my Etsy shop!
