52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 25

Behind the Seams

This week I want to give you a peek behind the seams.
Show you what the fabric looks like on the backside.  It is important to have even seams, no more than a 1/4 inch.  This allows for a smooth book page when I am binding.
Before printing on the textiles, I always do a lot of sewing.   The more time I take at this stage, the better control I have of the printmaking process later on.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
