M. I .A.

Oh my this has been a mad month! My trip to Valencia was brilliant , but slightly bonkers, and if you like fireworks, noisy fireworks, I can highly recommend the Falla Festival. I hope to return to Valencia, it is a beautiful city and I would like the time to look around without the beautiful chaos of the Falla .

However my trip hasn’t done anything to help me post my prints, so this is a mega catch up before we ‘pinch punch , the first of the month’ again !

New places

I went to Blackburn Cathedral today. What a beautiful space. And so many lovely people there. Definitely recommend popping in if you can.

Back at home I had tried to be inspired by my day at Blackburn and used a stencil to mask parts of the paper before printing with purple and black ink.

Monday , Monday…

Todays print is using the small circular gel plate. I wanted to print onto some paper from an old book, however things developed and I finished with a print on  white drawing paper. I used a mix of household paint  and acrylic . I had begun with the idea of drawing onto the plate, but overprinting blotted out most of the drawing. several impressions later I was happy with this as a final print.

Weekend

The end of the weekend is here , another week beginning, and what a busy week it is going to be, hope I can keep up !

There are a mix of prints from the last few days, still experimenting with the fabric, tried some green acrylic on Friday and I thought it worked quite well. The draw of the gel plate called me back on Saturday and today. Think I might try and use it to print onto the fabric tomorrow.

Pinch , Punch , First of the Month.

Oh my another moth gone ! and arrrghhh I missed posting yesterdays print. Oh well , not the end of the world.

I have started to think about printing when I am away from home and so yesterdays print was made with things I could take away with me and using things around me . I was quite pleased with how the fabric worked and I think it will be easier than taking paper with me on my travels .

Tried the same technique again today , using an old lanyard and the same black ink pad.
