Winter Walk #2 Printed
For Winter Walk #2, I have pulled out all my pale yellow-green-beige hand dyes and have cut them up to create the collage I want for the background. These have been overprinted with screen printing of handwriting from both my maternal and paternal grandmothers. This time - I added some of my own, too. The screen printing has been overprinted with block printing.
I have an invitational show coming up - and the size requirement is 24" wide x 60" high. I figure I may as well try doing this next piece in the series in this size. Here is the whole thing (below):
It has already been layered with the batting and backing - I did that part when I stitched the raw edge collage together. Now I am looking at it on my design wall and thinking about what to do next.
