On My Very Own Silk Road

From my first attempt botanical contact printing on silk.

Not sure how far down the road I'll go with bo-co printing on silk, but I am having fairly good success so far and feeling more encouraged as I go.

Today, rain. But the vat is calling me back.

Easy Peazy & Hard As Chard

In the studio with Rebeca, having loads of fun while printing for GRuB (Garden Raised Bounty) for their fundraiser. You'll have to be quick to get one of these awesome potholders.
  
Co designing with Rebeca was the most fun I've had collaborating, ever.

 In the studio by myself today, thinking we should have printed "Hard As Chard" instead. Registering dozens of pieces of seam binding is challenging. Phew, finally finished!
It won't say so on this colophon, but this is another Inking Up! for Social & Environmental Justice publications from May Day Press. Had to keep this colophon short as possible to suit our "easy peasy" approach.

Stayed tuned for the finished product. We will be having a sewing bee on Sunday!
