I did a Collagraph printing workshop at The Cubby Hole for my birthday treat.
I've been wanting to take a printing workshop forever but never quite managed it. We made our printing plates from a variety of tapes so that we didn't need to wait for them to dry before putting them through the printing press.
The image at the top of the post was made from this plate, made entirely from masking tape on card, and using my favourite punches in the whole world [my Martha Stewart Hydrangeas].
We also worked on card shaped the same as our first initial. I decided to make a few and print a collection. We did LoaDS of printing :)
I'm going to add some stitching to some of my pieces I think. It was great to see Carol having the time to join us on this workshop. I love the pieces she did with textured wallpaper.
We had great fun with the string - it could be 'deconstructed' into very fine threads which printed brilliantly.
little Sue made this fabulously textured flower
whilst Nigel added roots and leaves to his 'N' with it
Wendy made a fantastic print from the leftover card from her 'W' being cut with the Cricut.
A fabulous, fabulous day :)
