Beginnings of a new series?

I had such a lovely time at K&S at Harrogate playing with some ideas around layering up images using paper lamination and screenprinting with inks onto a variety of lightweight fabrics. It is not there yet - it is all just too light and bright for my murky palate sensibilities but I do think there is something to be developed here.

 The first layer is screen printed onto a dyed cotton fabric base using inks and readymade thermofax screens
This layer is screen printed onto a silk organza which gives a lovely light transparency

This layer is using a combination of paper lamination of all sorts of painted papers with screen printed images on top

 And finally adding some colour using Koh-I- Noor Dye paints
