We've been enjoying gorgeous Spring weather (although we need more rain) so I was prompted to take a couple of garden pics.
Top is looking down towards the vegie garden which is shown below.
A new covered notebook using one of my recent prints. This will be a surprize for someone soon.
Another breakdown print - this one is made with bubble wrap. More to come soon - I've been washing out some batched pieces.

This week I've been playing with breakdown printing. These are all from the same screen which I used for monoprinting on another large piece of fabric then left all the dye on the screen to dry. The next day I printed from it with clear manutex - the middle pic is the first pull - you can see how the dye in the screen gradually breaks down with each successive print. The dye in the screen wasn't very thick so I thought I'd only get about 3 prints from it but I ended up getting quite a few. I 've done lots of others this week too but they're still batching.
I just love this process - you can get fantastic organic imagery happening and its very spontaneous - no registration or lining up anything. It is a bit messy though.

Screen print with a soy wax stencil
Tin print with mono printing over
Machine embroidered panel: free motion stitched, heat gunned, cut up and re-assembled. Not finished yet.
This started as a sun print, but the sun disappeared too early so I printed over with more of my plastic thingys (made from milk bottle plastic) then some stencilling with paint and gold shiva stick.
