'bondi swimmers'

Creating a negative image instead of a positive image for screen printing yardage was a little trickier than I thought. You can see the screen that I made, using light sensitive emulsion. I thought it would look interesting to have the raw fabric show through for the arms and legs of the swimmers. When I created this design, I was imagining I was lying on the sea bed looking up at all the swimmers above me. Ocean swimming races are popular at Bondi Beach, where I live, and I only ever see them from the shore. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and decided to make a beach tote for my Etsy shop.
