Welcome to Day 2 of Kathryn's
Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop
Welcome to day 2 of the Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop. If you've been hopping your way thru our SPOOKTACULAR Blog Hop then you should be arriving here from Denise L.s Blog "Vindeeloo's This N That"
If your a follower of my blog then you know for the last few weeks I've been moving and very busy and not to much blogging or facebooking going on.... I miss it yes but, I'm just too busy to think about it. I'm still trying to get the house organized... all of the immediate things are away but, there are still things that need to be done.... and with my condition... I can only do so much at a time and then I just can't do anything else.
But enough about me and what's been going on. I just love this time of year.
I'm so glad that Kathryn allowed me to take part in her Halloween Blog Hop. I just love Halloween. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop. Jump on your broom and fly on over to Kathryn's blog right here (No, I'm not calling you a witch, just getting in the Holiday Spirit!!!!) As for Treats in the form of BLOG CANDY please see each individual Blog for what they are offerring. I have a message about my CANDY at the end of my post.
For my post today I needed to make up some shirts for my son and his friend because they are going to be on TV this upcoming Tuesday promoting a Haunted Trail that both they and my daughter all volunteer there and they have lots of fun. Where we live in the woods there really isn't any trick or treating and my kids are teenagers anyway.
So, back for Father's Day (Yes, your going to be reading this right) My wonderful husband purchased me a YUDU machine... I like it, I don't love it. I haven't used it enough to fall in love with it like my Gypsy or my Cricut Expression machines.
Okay so here are some pictures of the process.
For my project I used both my Gypsy and my Cricut to cut out the wording for the T-Shirts.
This is what it looked like when I was done cutting out the letters and sticking them on white paper.
Then this is the paper I was going to use to make the template that I was going to use to make the shirts.
So, I took this and .....
I grabbed my printer. To make a copy of what I just made.
I placed the sheet that I made face down on my printer then I loaded a sheet of this into my printers paper tray.
Here's what the sheet actually looks like .
Then this page goes onto of the YUDU machine so that you can burn it onto the emulsion sheet.
I can't show you the emulsion sheet because your supposed to keep them in the dark as much as possible... At this point you take the screen with the emulsion sheet on it and you hit the sun button that's on the machine about 8 minutes and then you take the screen with the now blue emulsion sheet on it and you wash the green emulsion off of the screen that you just burned.
Thank you for your help Brittany... she likes to do this part!
Here's how it looks when it's all finished
Then you take this prepared screen place it in your YUDU along with what your going to print on in my case an orange shirt. Before you place the YUDU lid down onto what your printing on you need to flood the screen with ink. Sorry no pics of this step... cause at this point you need to work fast.
But here's what we ended up with:
The only thing left to do is for me to heat set the ink on the shirts with a warm Iron. I have to still do that.
So, Thanks for stopping by today.
Now, I'm going to magically send you on your journey to Paula's Blog , "Scrap Your World"
