Is your glass half full or half empty?

The past couple of weeks have been non-stop with this group magazine project. I know that I always say I’m busy, but this project is the busiest yet.

This is the first ‘real’ group project we’ve had and it’s definitely been an eye opener. Working as a group takes a lot of planning, discussion, compromise and is just generally tiring. We’re aiming to impress too, so putting a lot of extra effort in… On Friday, Team Divide went up to Greestone to step away from our screens and get our hands messy (and then did the even messier photoshoot on Sat. Got to love the mess!).

Lucy squeegy-ing pink…

… oooh! Emma & Sunjay setting up…

Team Divide were like a machine – prints coming out of our ears! Amber’s classy b&w design…

Emma preps one of our screens – Emma & I devised a plan to print our work together, but I messed it up (sorry Em)…

… whilst everyone else is still hard at work.

Mixing our orange…

… and the first test print! About 2 hours, 20 stress fits and 50 washes of our screens later, the drying rack was full!

We were running out of time, so to help them along their way, I got the hairdryer out. Emma & I look after our prints 😉

I love screen printing, but I just wish it wasn’t so stressful! I’m not one of those people who crave perfection with it as I like the unique aspects and that every print is different but I always end up stressing out and that’s when things go wrong. Looking back, I really don’t know how I got through the Limited Edition project doing my 4 colour stencil prints – CRAZY!

Anyway, more on this stuff soon 🙂 I feel like I’m being very mysterious but I’m just keeping you all in suspense for the big reveal next week! This deadline has come around so quickly – eek!

    for me though the glass is always full: 50% full of water and 50% full of air 🙂
