Sketchbook - monoprinting in perspective!

Initial sketches of my sewing chair and reels, ink bottles-

Then went over the lines on the right page above, over a printing ink plate under the page to give the following couple of images:

The second one used the remains of the ink left on the plate after the first was printed, and I think gives a clearer image of the cylinder shapes.  I used fabric printing ink as it was at hand and the right consistency.

 I printed a couple the same in turquoise and in green with scraps of handmade paper as resists, then swopped over the paper scraps in the prints.  The one above shows the turq monoprint (ink a bit thick) with the green printed scrap in place.

Here the bottle was printed in green then the glasses were overprinted in yellow and red.  The imprint is shown on the right. 
This got quite addictive - must try some on other paper textures after seeing Sian's prints on Tissutex.
