I've been experimenting with deconstructed (breakdown) screen printing with mixed results this year. The piece above called "Birch & Moons" was a good surprise. One day I had extra dye so I printed on a scrap piece of torn and soda-ash soaked cotton canvas. I had placed deli paper under the screen during the preparation phase and liked the looks. I placed the dried deli paper over the center of the printed canvas and went "aha" -- a birch forest! Later I hand-beaded my version of birch trees and cut moon shapes from remaining deli paper scraps. Today I covered and painted a piece of gator board 8" x 15" and glued on the fabric. I think I'm done.
Last week I tried mono printing with thickened dye. I spread the dye on a thin plastic cutting mat, laid fabric over the dye, then used a brayer. The dye moved and morphed on the plastic, creating interesting bubbles and swirls. I cut a few poppy pod outlines from cardboard and laid some on the dye before adding the fabric. Had enough "OK" pieces to stitch together. I free-motion stitched poppy pods over the printed outlines, machine quilted a random grid, and finished with piped binding. The piece which is about 10" x 12" truly is straight and square, but I have difficulty telling my camera that fact.
