Screen Printing and Stenciling (Something A Little More Exciting)

Screen Printing always seems a little daunting as it is such a long process to transfer your image onto the screen, however this technique of stenciling that I was introduced to yesterday is highly experimental and just great fun! The key is to layer up the images with different colors and stencils starting with the lightest and ending in the darkest/most vivid tones. My work is normally so neat and pristine and I love it when a technique allows me to let go of this control and create something which I am not really sure what the outcome will be. The images above have only got two layers printed on top, however I intend to go back to this resource and print with a definite subject matter in mind, and add as many layers as possible!
