a wonderful workshop

This past weekend, I attended a monoprint/monotype workshop with Luce Zolna.  "Monoprinting for Calligraphers" through the Chicago Calligraphy Collective.  Learned many new and wonderful ways to print.

Luce favored us with lots of demos, ideas and techniques.

Using real plants, we made these botanical prints.

Just love them!

We all ooo'd and ahhh'd the entire time.

We also used templates and stencils, as the one below was done.

So much fun!

It was a busy time and the hours flew!

A workshop that we wished wouldn't end.

It was amazing to find the hidden or special images among the large prints we made.

I selected some here and now will mount them on watercolor paper and do some lettering.

Another idea was to make an accordian book.  These just spoke American Indian to me.  More to do on this project too, but just excited to get it started.
