Finishing Up

In the fiber group I'm in -  Fiber Junkies, we love doing deconstructive screen printing, especially in the warm weather when we can work outside. This summer we met at Vals - our "official" gathering place for this technique as she has such a great space. I always bring a number of blank screens and often don't get around to printing them. 
 Like this was left in the garage when I unpacked the car and I just came across it the other day.
 The wonderful thing about this technique is that you can leave a screen with dried dye on it indefinitely.
 and it prints when you are ready to. I had forgotten the colors I used so it was a nice surprise when I started pulling the squeegee.
 I printed around 6 pieces.
Now the challenge of figuring what to do with them.
I've been in a funk since I've been home from Ireland, not able to get back in my studio with so much catch up to do in other areas. I also want to do a series of quilts using some of the pictures I took but I need to edit them first. Anyway, doing some no-brainers, simple things is good for me right now and easing me back into my art.
