As you can see I've been having way too much fun. Gel printing/monoprinting is quite addictive. Now what to do with all of these creations. Several of the paper ones were my favorites so I printed the images onto inkjet fabric sheets. I'm using Jacquard Cotton today. I've used several other brands. I don't have a favorite at this point. I'll stitch - hand and machine - at a later date.
Below is a mock-up of a fabric monoprint. I added some fabrics I printed and painted using the same paints to help coordinate the design. Needs a zinger color/fabric.
I've repeated that happy experiment of spraying leaves and plate with water.
A paper favorite
Definitely another favorite.
Now I must get supplies in order for the Wildacres, NC Nature Printing Society Workshop. Husband and I leave Monday!!!!!!
