I'm surprised at how hard it is for me to embrace the "true" tenets of printmaking - white edges, clean marks, well defined carved or etched lines. Instead I find myself layering and turning and adding to my prints in a non-traditional way. I keep saving newsprint scraps with ink on them to use later for collage. I can't resist the urge to add mixed media everywhere!
I suppose I've worked with messy hands and goopy layers for too long. No worries, I'm on a roll here, looking for plants to squish and prints to pull and having fun in the studio!
