Color Inspiration – Woven Paper

Even when I’m working with paper and paint textiles seem to be on my mind. This little group of monoprints was created by using paper strips woven together.

The top two prints are impressions of weaving and were made by inking and weaving paper strips together and placing them on the plate to print.

For the next two, I cut up old prints that I wasn’t satisfied with into strips and woven them together. You can see that I’d experimented with printing knit fabric in these two. I like the combination of knit and woven in the same piece.

The mouthwatering sherbert-y shades of mango, raspberry, citrus, watermellon and banana give them a cheerful and summery feel.
