Monoprinting on cloth or paper
I love monoprinting on a gelatin plate. And you can do so many things with your monoprints. You can print on cloth and do a reverse appliqué (that's my beet pomegranate batting peaking through)
You can print on colored cloth (this is black linen from an old pair of pants.)
You can print on paper and collage and stitch.
You can use the monoprint as a background and appliqué on top.
You can just hand stitch the dickens out of it.
You can make them and sell them on ETSY (Agave Casa is here in my Etsy shop.)
You could make monoprints on your own, and use my friend Leslie Jenison's tutorial on The Sketchbook Challenge blog, OR, better yet, take a full day workshop from me at the Long Beach Quilt Festival on Friday, July 29. Or if you live farther east (giggle) take Monoprinting on Fabric and Paper at Art Unraveled in Phoenix on August 4. I'll bring the gelatin!
