Are this prints from drawings or photographs? just curious.

The prints aren’t from drawings or photos Helen, I printed direct from the fabric.

I really like this one a lot. What size is it? Collograph? Collographed impression? Oh, well done, Paulene, it's brill.

Thanks Sue, the image is about 40cm long.
Tried all sorts of ways of printing disintegrating fabric, pressed into a soft ground to make etching plates, collagraphs etc but ended up laying the fabric on an inked plate and putting it through the press to get the ink embebded then printing onto the paper, that way you get good embossing as well but without the edges of a plate.

I love this one too. I thought that was what you were doing. I used a plexiglass plate on top of some woven wire edged ribbon in the print of mine you liked. I let the ribbon slop over the edge of the plexi plate so it moved outside the plate mark. The one at http://abovethegwbphoto.blogspot.com/2008/05/monoprint-and-ghost.html
