Screen printing on saree after years

Always its fun with screen printing. When I learnt how to do screen printing, I had used it for makeover of sarees. With screen printing and embroidery an ordinary saree looks like a designer saree. As I was busy with jewelry designing last year so could not work with screen printing.
 This is my friend's saree, which she had given to design quite  sometime back. She wanted screen printing on this saree:
This is a simple hand-loom cotton saree in mehandi color, with zari border. The border has small paisley designs, so I selected paisley motifs to print on this.
This design is not the traditional paisley, little modified to give a trendy look. I printed these paisley designs along the border of the saree with dull gold color. First I thought of using bright gold color, dropped the idea, since it would have looked very bright.
All along the border and near the pallu I screen printed these motifs. The pallu is green with gold color lines, so left it as it is:
Hope this is come out good and my friend likes it. Planning to work on another saree with screen printing. I will share about the same in my next post.
Till then,
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
