Up and running away with it
Thank you for the sensible replies to my dilemma in the last post! Random does seem to be the best way to go.
I grabbed something off the list and started. Printing with lino blocks on fabric. Clearly my registration process needs some thought, mainly because I don't have one, and some of the blocks need to be cleaned up a bit more, and I really should iron the fabric before printing on it, but I think this is could be something worth pursuing. I used paint I already had, printed on some scrap calico, and a block from another printing project, to which I added the leaves and the outline.
Researching block-printed fabric led me to this amazing blog. Jodi Green is, as part of her MFA thesis, wearing only clothes that she's made and printed. Go here to see photos of her wardrobe project.
