Hambly Studios was created over 35 years ago by Harry Hambly. Hambly was originally known for its screenprints, serigraphs, posters, greeting cards, and prismatic stickers. Most Hambly products are hand silk-screened at their studio in Santa Clara, CA. Today Hambly is known for it's innovative color combinations and eclectic designs.
Hambly screen prints are just one item offered by Hambly. They are acetate overlays that can be used in a huge variety of ways such as on layouts, cards, mini-albums, artist trading cards, and embellishments. They can be die cut, cut with scissors, written on, painted, they accept rub-ons, and the list goes on and on.
Today I am using a Hambly screen print from their Urban Chic Frames collection (black) to create a 4x6 mini-album. I've used two 4x6 frames cut from one sheet as the front and back covers of this project. I've also added a small 2x2" frame to the front cover of the mini-album, and another 2x4" frame as a see through page, and one tiny 1x1" frame as an embellishment cluster base on a page.
