oh the fun of printmaking...
So, I mentioned that I got a bit of printmaking going. I think that I like it more every time I try it. I used foam produce trays again, because they are fast, easy and cheap. On the back of each piece, I added a little masking tape handle for pulling them up off of the paper.
I've found that acrylic paint works remarkably well, and is much less expensive that block printing ink. Plus it comes in so many pretty colors!
Doing this printing also gave me the excuse to use some manuscript paper, which I'm in love with. (Especially because this particular stack has been around a while and the edges are yellowing!) When I went to grab a few more sheets, I spotted a stack of sentence strip. (Can you tell I was raiding the home school supplies here?)
White is nice, but how about those colors!?
Make. Do. Create.
Who wants one of these little prints? Let's call this the first giveaway of the week. Leave a comment with your name and something that you are currently making, doing or creating. I'll choose a winner tomorrow!
