In order to find my way with this stuff I decided to think of these patterned papers like quilting prints. Beginning with a house quilt format, I realized that my hand dyed fabrics had that watercolor-y look and the monoprints didn't, so I had to actually paint the background and some papers to replicate my fabrics. The tree lines are an example.
So why do this in paper when I have boatloads of fabric already? Good question. I think the drawing part is what interests me. That and making my own patterned papers.
And of course there are those people out there that prefer materials like paper and paint over fabric...they get that stuff.
I can't really grasp all my motivations, I just gotta try things.
