Applied Monoprint with Scissors Paper Cloth

Taking the form of decoration from my candle holders, I introduced the wide possibilities of applying monoprinted tissue paper to a range of forms and vessels, to Scissors Paper Cloth. Many of the other techniques we've shared have been quite open-ended in their style, and I wasn't sure how this one would move develop in the minds of my creative participants. Perhaps it would be too rigid and not leave scope enough for their own experimentation?
I needn't have worried.  From smudging ink, painting on top of the prints, applying prints to existing paintings and rubbing work off with a sponge, everyone seemed to find a different way to interpret the techniques!

Here is work by Lindsey (above) and Charlotte (below).
