The dark lines in the block below are where the fabric was laid over corrugated cardboard and a brayer with black paint run over the top. I also discharged circles by dipping a tray, recessed with circular openings (looked like it held candy) into discharge paste and stamping on fabric.
I like the dry brush painting which uses little paint so much of the base fabric shows through.
I wanted to do some screening on top. I like words and in my search for something appropriate, I came across my grandmothers "cookbook". This is a cookbook of the 1940s, when during the depression, people didn't have extra income to buy cookbooks. They improvised and made their own. To this day, my favorite recipes are those from friends and social gatherings. And this is my grandmothers - her favorites from friends and church suppers. The pages note who it's from, how many it serves, where she had it AND ALL in her handwriting - even better! There are also clippings from the paper, all yellow and aged. One caught my eye - "Cherry Winks". What a great name for a cookie.
