Another WIP

Here's another WIP art quilt, about 5 " X 7".  I've appliqued the inkjet printed on fabric images onto some fabulous old silk remnants, the botton piece is Japanese kimono remnant.  The silk doesn't scan well, so I took pictures:

Not sure where this one's going to go.  I'm thinking maybe some stencilling...taking suggestions!

And here's a first proof of my new print.  Also unsure where it's going and am way open to suggestions.  I'm thinking that I could be brave enough for a reduction print but I dunno....also it may be too late for that.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking.  And feel free to leave your comments here.  I made it easier for you to do. 


  1. Great design! I've been carving coffee mugs lately...something in the air? (or water?)!!

  2. Hello, I have done many reductives and if you are brave and willing to make a few extras, go for it! You can use transparents or opaques, You can start from this yellow, easily add an orange, and perhaps a brown to top it off -- please post so we can all enjoy the view!

  3. Renee, thanks for the encouragement and advice for direction - I needed that!

  4. Go for it! Reductions are fun to do - the anticipation is a real high, and you won't know for sure what you have until you have it.(You can quote me on that!) Great fun ;-)

  5. Thanks for the prompt! I'm getting ready to get back to my printmaking and I'm going to give it a go!
