MONOPRINTING!!

Have you seen the new Altered Arts Magazine?  There is an article by Trisha Neal aka "Trisha Too" on "Monoprinting".  I saw this technique on my friend Marit's blog months ago and really wanted to try it.  So when Trisha wrote the article, with detailed instructions and pictures I had to try it!!


 Be nice!  This was my first try!!
I gathered some supplies and got to work!!
These are just a few pages.  I made 20 pages in a half hour!!
Most of them don't have enough ink to cover the whole page, but I still think they look awesome!!

I think the lines on this one look like cancelled postage.

 I added spray ink on top of some of them.

These are my favorites!  I used punchinella (sequin waste) and I think it looks like snake skin!
I hope you enjoyed my first attempt at monoprinting!  I plan on making more papers, maybe today?

And for everyone on the east coast (like me) please stay safe!  This hurricane is crazy!

  5. You're so brave! I'm always scared to try new things and post them on my blog. I really need to step out of my comfort zone more often!
