Part 2: Monoprinted vignettes

In part 1 I showed the waste prints from this project and explained the process of transferring plant material, mainly leaves, to paper.

Each page was initially prepared by printing a textural backdrop representing the concept of different terrain.  Jack and I walk bush trails, streets, through parks, on pathways, through burnt undergrowth & across creeks and I’ve included colours that encompass these different aspects.

Here are 12 of the 32 completed background pieces, ready for the plant overlay.

The range includes single layer prints sometimes using masks, whilst others encompass a design feature once the mask from the previous print has been removed.
