My blocks for printing.  Having fun with decorating papers.
I am pleased with my papers.  The only ones that were disappointing were the ones which I added the diluted PVC to.  The cartridge paper did not turn out as shiny as I hoped and I backed the tissue paper samples with cartridge paper to support it but when I tried to lift it the paper tore.  I then had to leave it and as the PVC dried the tissue stuck to the cartridge paper.  Learning curve!
I have now looked at my various black and white designs from Chapter 8 and chosen two to work with.
I have cut patterns so when I have finally decided which one to choose for my final  hanging I have the design ready.  Only by accident did I end up with these white strips  when cutting the patterns and I then realised that they joined some of the designs together so I have experimented with adding them to each design.

It is interesting to see the various designs images together.  I am undecided as to which one to choose but I am not that keen on the last one so that is a start!  I think it is the mixture of the circular design with the angular that does not work.


  1. Looks like you had fun with this Ros - and what a lot of super papers you have to work with. I love your little umbrellas - very appropriate for the weather we've been having! The brown and indigo look very good together and I think you are right that the white lines connect the designs.

  2. Thanks for your comments Catherine. Yes it was fun. I got a bit carried away and took over the conservatory for a couple of days!

  3. It looks like a nice bright place to work.
