Greetje Hein – Monoprint – Just Do it
Monoprinting: often thought and read about it, but never done it. So this must be the first time. I read about the different techniques and watched some video’s on you-tube, made my own jelly-plate and started!
I only used white pearl textile paint to keep it “easy”. Experiments with different materials like rick-rack band, lace, stamps, etc. After that I wanted to try another method by drawing a tree-design with the fabric on the plate. I also made a reverse print of the trees. I just did what I thought would be nice and did not think about a design for my quilt. After finished “playing”, I put several pieces together and created a landscape.
I machine-quilted with only black and white yarn and added some beads in blue.
