I guess monoprint means one at a time but it could also be called multiprint if you repeat the process. I don't know. What am I thinking? I need to stop thinking. But I can't stop thinking about the possibilities. Can't. Stop. Thinking. Mono. Multi.


Very well done!! Loved the registration technique!! And the cheese cloth effect awesome 👏 .
