Fun Monoprinting with Gelatin and Using TAP

We have had so much rain I think I'm growing moss everywhere.  The small veggies garden is planted and the flower gardens are looking good.  The hollyhocks look like they will be outstanding this year.
The Farmer's Market sales have been slow, but they should pick up in in July with the tourists coming to the lake.
This week I finally got the opportunity to "play with fabric" again.  Friend Kathleen came over and I showed her how to mono print on gelatin plates.  I did some screen printing with paint and some mono printing.  I tried my hand at using TAP transfer paper and I love it.  The fabric under the
transfer shows through, love that!  I've designed another wall hanging using the fabric I worked on.  It's in the planning stages but almost there.

Here are some samples of the fun we had printing. The first three are mine, second three are Kathleen's.  Last two are mine, last photo is of my finished fabric on my design wall.


  1. Love these, especially the first one!! Also, I have some TAP but I've not yet used it. Love your last pic.

    1. Thanks Lynda. I'm almost ready to machine quilt the last one.
      The first one was done with thermoscreen printing.
