What do yudu?

I’ve been super busy the past week, trying out a new crafting tool. Ever heard of the yudu? So…what DO you do with a yudu?! The yudu is a personal screen printing machine by Provo Craft and it is a LOT of fun. A learning curve to be sure, but I’ve tried and tested and came up with a lot of tips. Check out the entire article here at Craft Critique.

One of my first projects was a silk screened butterfly. Love this butterfly! It made it onto cloth napkins, a cloth pencil case and a little cloth bag. It would be totally cute on a t-shirt too!

This butterfly image came from a digital brush set by Anna Aspnes of Designer Digitals  Brush set is called Tribute No. 1 Brush Set. Before using an image for your crafting use, be sure to check out the Terms of Use. Most purchased digital images are usable for personal crafting use in multi-media.

I also wanted to give silk screening paper a whirl. You know how much I love paper! Silk screening gives a totally different look in person than stamping or printing on the computer. Really, really, really cool!

This is a fun little note set I created. The crown is from the same Anna Aspnes brush set as above.

Take care and have a crafty day!

  1. These are beautiful, Julia. I’ve been thinking about silkscreening… did it in the 1970s, but now you’ve convinced me it’s easy enough to try again. How does it feel to be an enabler…lol? TFS your lovely creations.

  2. Your prints came out great. Anna’s designs are so awesome!!!
