This is the screen (below) I used to make the print above:
The black area is where the paint comes through. And I deliberately didn’t make the paint solid throughout the whole print, so it skipped, and I liked that result ~ ALOT! Sure had a great time playing with paint, and spreading it unevenly! Yes… unevenly and rather ‘worn’ like, which the screen also produces… which I Love, Love, LOVE!
And the picture below (and above) is from a print I first made, experimenting with my Gelli printing plate, and Decolourant, with a stamp. The picture shows the additional paint, used as an overlay using the screen. I love how the texture of the ‘white out’ (for lack of a better term right at the moment), plays against the screen print.
And who doesn’t love tulips? I can imagine some quilting on this print, with white thread. Perhaps a trapunto of ‘shadow tulips’ in the background? How Exciting to think about the possibilities!!
This is the screen… I could print ‘a whole bunch’ of this design! My lines at the top got a little wobbly when the screen moved on me, but this is a matter of practice. I used a black, foam brush for my screening, but I would also like to try a credit card or something more firm to press the paint through the screen.
I LOVE this scrolly-swirls screen. I layered a bunch of them in rows, too, on a fat quarter-sized piece of fabric.
Which turned out like this:
One of my favorite doodles, to draw, and to free motion quilt are swirls. And now, I have a cool graphic print which I can use as a background, border, or cut up into pieced blocks, bindings, and fused pieces of specific shapes, over-layering… and more!
Thanks for checking out my FUN.
