Printing again!

Ok, I'm doing it the funky way... but I'm doing it. And I can only imagine even better results if I ever get my silkscreens printing again! Doing this really makes me happy.

New outdoor workspace

I hope to use this workspace a lot this spring and summer. I'll use it mostly for dyes and wet felting. I know the picture doesnt show much but its really just a table outside. It has its charm though, under a fig tree with passion flowers crawling up. Lets see what will come from it...

Handprint versus digital

See for yourselves. My originals (on the right) versus the digitally printed versions. 
Somewhere on the way they changed. I lost great brightness and luminosity on the first one and a lot of contrast on the second one! I will have to make efforts to improve for the next time!

Precious flowers

 I feel very lucky to have these just outside my door...

...and if you stop to lift one of these little precious flowers up you can admire how really perfect they are.

Not taking pictures

So I was heading out with the camera to finally take pictures of all my 'new things' and the fabrics I printed with the stencil... of course I got distracted taking pictures of the beautifull irises that are coming out at the moment. Anyway, I had time to take two pictures of the wind blowing up theese fabrics and this one before the camera run out of battery! Photo session will have to be postponed for anohter day..

Little flowers about to open

Monday, 13 February 2017


I added a few brush strokes to my prints. Then I added some silver or gold. I have a lovely new range of patterns, inspiration for my next silk painting session and I feel a bit less rusty!
I wander what to do with my paper paintings though...

Happy begginings

I finally sorted out the wooden hut enough to start some work again. There is really too much stuff in there! 
I've wanted to start painting silk again for quite some time now but I must admit its been so long, I feel a bit rusty... So, I did a bit of colour play on paper and tried out my new stencils. I think I'll try them on fabric next time. Then maybe I'll feel ready for the silk.

I've been cutting out stencils from some of my newer pattern designs. I like working with stencils cause it allows quick colour play and endles variations of the same base design. It takes some time to make the stencil but its worth it in the end.

2017 new year resolutions for lasidi

These are my intentions for this new year for lasidi. I will try to keep it realistic:

Post on my blog at least once a month.
Relink my blog to Facebook and twitter (if it still works like that).
Use Instagram at least once weekly.
Review all 'About me' texts and update them.
Make new cards with my new domain 'artesanatextil' as 'lasidi' has been taken (hopefully just temporarily)
Start painting again.
Reopen my Etsy shop and list new items.
Make a new gallery for my work (as mosaicglobe has disappeared)

I think that's enough, as I also have to be a house keeper, cook, wife and mum of two, daughter and hopefully give some time to my friends. 

Acrylic on wood. 30x50cm. approx. I painted this as a study for a larger painting in my second year of art school... that is about 15 years ago! How time flies.

Happy new year

My best wishes to all people for this new year.
Peace be upon us all and peace for all that have left us along the way.

May we all be blessed, protected and guided
on to the true path of love, compassion,
feeling grateful for what we have and
finding forgiveness from our true selves.
May we grow in faith and become stronger.
May we free the inner light.
Let us always be connected...
