It all started with this cork board---which originally came dressed in pink satin with ribbons wrapped around it. $1. I snagged it, trading in the fabric for some time with my favorite Folk Art paints and brush.
You maybe can't see, but then I splashed some extreme glitter round' the edges. I'm not sure if I told you I moved, but I moved somewhere in the last few weeks. Whew. So glad it's over! I thought this cork board would look perfect for my notes and ideas above one of my work benches.
Most days, you can find me whipping up jewelry of some form, so I was hot to try the necklace screen. When you screen print cork, I recommend the brush technique or only squeegee-ing the paint down once.
Quick tips video that features all the basics of Simply Screen. Be watching for some killer Simply Screen kits at Walmart the day after Thanksgiving! These would make a fun gift from Santa or a unique activity during your holiday vacation. No holiday vacation is complete without a family silk screening night...I always say! ;)

I just stumbled on this site with a bit of quirky info. For example, who invented those cute little tree air fresheners in your car (SnoopDog has at least 8 hanging from his rearview mirror)? I like the yellow, vanilla ones by the way. Or how about, who came up with the "cone of silence?" And hey, they even tell you who invented Simply Screen? ThunktUp has the answers to things I might not've thought about. Fun!
