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 !
Well I love looking at the stats on WordPress and seeing where in the world people who look at my site are. On Wednesday there were several views from Italy, very nice, thank you for looking and please come back soon !! Its a catch up day today.
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.
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.
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.
