52 Weeks of Print: 35/52

52 Weeks of Print: 35/52

I'm beginning to obsess a little over this printmaking. As in I really want to make it look a little more professional. Took 35 weeks, but hey.

52 Weeks of Print: 35/52

After a lightbulb moment, I dug out my large, artist's desk magnifying glass to combat the eye strain I've had for the previous 34 carvings. THAT made a difference.

Then I went out and purchased actual printmaking paper - it does seem to make a difference in the quality. Any printmakers out there want to recommend a good, yet affordable paper? I'd be much obliged.

In hindsight, I wish that I'd carved a little frame similar to last week's carving.
You can see it on the previous page in my little booklet. Next time.

    1. Oh, Sonia, thank you so much! I was actually thinking "maybe" Christmas card when I did it. I just have to make a separate stamp for red berries!
