Silk Screening from TV to Sofa

One of the things that I loved about Make and Mingle was the opportunity to meet ridiculously wonderful talented artists like Liz Squillace from Paradox Ink. When she came into a store in Fairfield to help with a class, she showed the girls how she made a screen from start to finish.  This particular image she got from watching TV!  Basically she paused a scene and took a picture and printed it out.  She showed us how to hand paint a screen to get the negative of an image.  After that she printed the screen on some vintage remnants.  There was one particular print that I had fallen in love with, and dear Liz was kind enough to give it to me.

Just now I got a chance to make something with it, with some vintage piping hanging around  the combo seemed like a no brainer.

The result is probably one of my all time favorite pillows.  Thanks Liz!
