Because the newsletter with the March 10, 2012 class for VCQ is coming out shortly I am putting up some samples for VCQ members to see. My friend and co-teacher, Sue Price, also has some samples on her blog at “Thread, Fiber, Fabric, Paint” http://threadfiberfabricpaint.blogspot.com/
I like using fabrics which already have some texture to them before I screenprint. Here I have a sample which was painted with sun sensitive paints and then printed and another which was hand dyed and a third which was hand dyed and then some “deconstructed” screen printing was added before the screen printing was added. The flowers and the leaves are quilting stencils which look and print just like a thermofax screen. They are meant to mark quilting lines by using a pounce chalk product. Other screens used in these samples are by Lyric Kinard and Plaid Enterprises.
