I had the urge to make prints with my geli plate the other day and here are some of the results, the best or my favorites. I believe I ended up with about 16 prints. I printed some on white duck fabric and others I overprinted on previous experimental fabrics I don’t mind covering up. I’m planning to create a small fabric book of these prints, with added stitching. I’m not sure yet exactly how that will go, but I’am open to experimentation.
As often is the case, my biggest challenge is SLOOOOOWING DOOOOWN and not rushing. There’s certainly no rush, but my mind is always far ahead of my actions, and sometimes I finish it IN MY MIND and never actually produce the item. I skip the fun part, and why would I do that? don’t know. I’ve laid the prints down in my studio in the order I hope to place them, trimmed to 8 by 8 inches. Now I’m pondering how exactly to create a look book. I’m pondering a book like the kind you would see to browse fabrics in an upholstery shop, flipping the pages up vertically, perhaps inserting rings at the top of each page. I’m still thinking, any suggestions ? please leave a COMMENT if you have an idea for how to organize and present the prints other than the typical book style we all know. I’m hoping to create a method to be added to as I create more prints. HELP!
