I have had my Yudu Screen-Printing System for a little while now, and while I am still a bit ‘gun’ shy of creating my own prints. I thought the best way to jump on the Yudu bandwagon would be to try one of these beautiful pre-burned screens from Provo Craft.  I thought this Symphony screen would be versatile and would allow me to get different looks using the same screen.

I gathered my Yudu Screen-Printing System, some various ink colors, and multiple t-shirts to try.

This shirt uses Yudu Black Ink, and I kept the bird centered in the middle of the tanktop. Don’t you just love the details that came through- even on a ribbed tank?

This plain gray jersey shirt really pops with the Yudu Red Ink. I lined the shirt up with the image to the top left side of the tshirt.

I used a large scrap of cardboard inside my t-shirt, instead of the usual shirt platen. This allowed me to position my shirt so that the image would print off the edge. For this tank, I flipped the shirt around and printed just the bottom half of the image, then added a couple more of the leaf tip up at the top of the shirt, by doing this, you can achieve an all over design.

My oldest daughter decided to dress this lime tank that we used Yudu White Ink on, by allowing the ink to dry and few moments, then dabbing fabric glitter ( Tulip) all over the shirt as well.
And because my youngest daughter couldn’t let her sister outglitter her, we used the Yudu Adhesive and Yudu Pink Glitter to create her shirt. 

You can see all the crazy fun we had creating these fun shirts!! With so many beautiful Yudu ink colors to chose from, and so many different styles and colors of shirts out there, you can create many looks from just one screen!

thanks for looking!

OMGOODNESS, how cool these are, Kris! I've never even heard of Yudu, so I am totally amazed right now. I think all of these are just stunning. Love how you managed to use the one image in so many different ways.
