|I chose antique and vintage irons as my inspiration, and used an |
antique iron as a print block to print an abstract landscape
undulating in the mist for "Irons in the Mist" (40" x 30") on the left.
Colour Vie pigments www.colourvie.com on cotton. Machine quilted.
I also printed a set of napkins using antique irons.
