Deconstructed screenprinting

Here are my first three attempts at deconstructed screenprinting, Kerr Grabowski-style. I followed the instructions on her video to make these prints. Now I want to use them as a basis for more surface design.

This print was made by printing over torn strips of newspaper with a screen that had been painted and dried with turquoise and sun yellow print paste. If you look at it sideways, it looks like tree trunks and their reflections.

This print was made by painting the screen with camel and sun yellow print paste and leaving it to dry while it was sitting on popped bubble wrap. Then it was printed with clear print paste.

This screen was painted with mixing red and sun yellow and left to dry with a muffin tin (actually a paint mixing tin) on top of the screen. I like this one best.

    These are really interesting. Did you let the items sit on the back of the screen until it dried like Carol Soderlund, or did you lay them under the screen and use thickener the “print” the screen and then let it dry?
