I'm ringing in the New Year with new work! 
 I love the process and results achieved with deconstructed screen printing.  Aiming for a graphite black on cotton......I got it!!
This design was created using a rubber pebble sink mat, screened over tan silk noil. Though the designs are fabulous to study and admire, their high energy can be challenging to work with.  But I'm a gal who loves a challenge!
Additional screen printing of roadside weed images were incorporated.  Next, the two fabrics were combined into uneven patchwork units, and highlighted with some dashes of color.  The background was laboriously hand embroidered.

Interesting! Is anything left in your kitchen that has not been used to stamp, screen, paint? A rubber sink mat?? Ingenious.

I agree, the results of your deconstructed screen printing are wonderful and I like what you have done with them.
