__ How many Prints did you make this week? 15 monoprints onto various papers such as old envelopes, graph paper, mg paper, cartridge, coloured papers etc
__ How many of these taught you something new? The majority of them , as I wasn't aware that the ink on the surface you print from needs to be rollered until it's a layer literally thinner than paper! So I was rolling the ink out in all kinds of thick slabs and the effect was pretty messy! I also made a couple of simple 6 page folded books with the intent on monoprinting straight onto them but I kept messing up the page order and printing onto the wrong side etc. Eventually i managed to get one almost completed one which I intend to finish next week!
