Monoprinted Stacked Journaling

It's been a while since I broke out my squeezie bottles of paint and plastic sheeting  and did some monoprinting of my technique, Stacked Journaling. I was inspired last week by working with this piece to get it ready for its new home, and while it doesn't actually contain any SJ, it made me pine for playing with the technique again.

I started with a lovely sheet of printmakers paper, size 22"x30", and just started slapping paint and stamping around on it. When I was satisfied with the depth, texture and intensity of the color, pattern, and composition, I cut a piece of plastic sheeting to the proper size, squeezed some stacked journaling onto it in black paint, flipped it over onto the painted paper and burnished it with my hand until the paint had transferred. When that dried, I began outlining the negative spaces with a white paint marker.

Naturally, I didn't think to take any process photos, but this piece was so much fun to do that I might just do it again and if so, I promise to take more photos!
