woodblock print on linen with embroidered embellishments

 I printed this woodblock on paper using a chine colle technique to add color (still life with fish detail 1).  I thought it would be fun to try it on linen but rather than add the details after printing I actually added the details then printed on top. This is where patience and assurance in your technique and/or a willingness to make mistakes comes into play.  I added the fabric detail to linen, patiently stitching the accent fabric to the linen. Then I inked up the woodblock, and with the help of a classmate, carefully placed the stitched linen onto the woodblock and ran it through the press.
