Addicted to Print

Help! I can't stop mono-printing and screen printing! Most of today's prints are on cotton fabric. The poppy (or in some cases the background around it), was masked with a freezer paper stencil before thickened dye was screen printed through commercial stencils to give interesting patterns. The very pale ones were made with left over ink on the screen, reactivated with clear dye thickener.

I've also treated myself to some white block printing ink to use on darker coloured backgrounds. The flower below on a hand dyed cotton, the teapot on black cotton and the 2nd teapot on hand dyed cartridge paper.
