Chapter Two

Inked cartridge paper using Brusho powders - Image 6a
After reading feedback from tutor I bought some Brusho powders and watched the video on the Distant Stitch website.  The image above shows the results which I am much happier with.

I swapped the colours round this time and stuck orange onto blue.

The final task for this second chapter was to choose two plain complementary coloured sheets and cut star shapes from one and stick them onto the second.   I cut blue stars and stuck them on an orange background.  One star has been torn and several weaved together.  Some have had another shape on top.

Print 8 – block turned 180 degrees after each print – horizontal
Print 9 – block turned 45 degrees and then staggered
Print 10 – block turned 45 degrees to form star and extended further to make larger star
Print 11 – block overprinted
Print 12 – block turned and printed side by side

Here is the first sheet of my block printing
Print 1 – block printed side by side keeping the shape the same way up
Print 2 – block turned 45 degrees after each print
Print 3 – block printed to show random effect
Print 4 – gaps left between each shape
Print 5 – block turned 180 degrees after each print – vertical
Print 6 – block turned 45 degrees – different starting position

My second task was to cut a print shape from a rubber to use as a printing block. I used Daler Rowney Deep Violet Acrylic paint for this block printing.

My first task for this chapter was to colour paper using inks.  I really enjoyed this activity as I had never done this before.  I bought myself a pack of sponges which were great, so easy to use and gave a super effect.  I used six different Winsor & Newton inks.
