Print, Print... and Repeat.

I've always been fascinated by prints - it's still nearly impossible to drag me away from a fabric store - but how to preserve them?

Here are a couple of experiments of mine, sure to become birthday presents in coming weeks.  They're antique fabric print designs, transferred using watery black ink on artist tissue paper.  The effect is an antique look, as the paper dries with a slight ruffle and it's light weight means it absorbs the colour of the paper or board behind it.  More to come...

Oh, and yes these are new shelves in my revamped workroom!!  mb
