monoprint girl brooches

Love this carefree approach to mono printing on fabric and then making it into brooches. Actually I did something, along these lines, with the doll forms that I included in my most recent printmaking installation "Aran".

I tried mono print on muslin, for the faces but I approached having the lines as the positive as opposed to the negative. Why did I not think of doing it in reverse??!!

. I mean I did not even try it although I did try several techniques. . I suppose I wanted the faces to be 'black and white" or "monachrome'!. But it might have worked .

I am still going to try to make some more Aran dolls and perhaps I will try them with faces in negative -as with these.
