August Prints


Last year I created a print for August, inspired by Indian block printed fabric. We printed it on silk and cotton.

This year, we used the same basic block to create a two-colour design.




Transparent blocks plus dvd-marking pens equals a very relaxing printing experience!

Beautiful, delicate stuff. And your transparent block/dvd-marking pen method looks like a real printing-stress reliever!

Your 2 colour print is divine Jesse! And that colour combo is one of my favourites. Just out of interest, I was wondering in what way do people tend to use your printed tapes? I thought it would be lovely on the hem of a dress.

Very beautiful! I have some old Indian wood block stamps lying around, you have inspired me to play around with them.
