I'm working on a new print which was originally going to have several plates for different colours. Then I hit upon the idea of masking areas with paper. This saves a lot of carving and lino and I have no idea why I didn't think of this before! It's easy and you can use the same piece of paper over and over. You just take the paper off when you are rolling on the ink and then put it back before you put your paper on. I apologise to those of you who aren't printing nerds. I have very little training in printmaking so I dream about this stuff at night. Sad but true.
Some of these prints are made on this gorgeous brown Nepalese handmade paper. I'm going to have to get more of this! I see another trip to the Paper Place in my future.
I haven't quite finished with these yet. They need to be signed and titled. There are some one white paper too. I'm hoping to get them into my Etsy soon : )

That's a great idea, Laurel! And it means that you could also 'borrow' part of an image for something entirely different. I love this print!

I wish I was a printing nerd! I agree with Ann; love it!
