Learning something new

I decided it was time to learn something new, so I just took an online class from Linda Germain on Soft Plate Relief Printing. Recycled foam plates and trays and sticky back foam were used to create printing plates. Class exercises were done on paper, but the process also works on fabric. Here are a few of my prints.

I also have a rather large pile of rejects and I haven't done the final assignments yet. It was fun, I like her teaching style and it's always good to learn something new.

I pieced one more donation top from that huge bag of scraps and then passed the bag of scraps on to someone else.

  1. Another week of eye-candy….thank you for sharing your fabulous work!

  2. Day 59 reminds me of daffodils in the spring. We still have lots of snow but I look forward to seeing the spring flowers. The stitching on your leaf really defines it Still loving the circles too.

    1. I was dreaming of daffodils when I stitched that piece.

  3. I really like the circle that looks like a flower and the one with the chain stitches. Oh heck, I love them all. Your new class sounds interesting. Maybe someday I will take a class that involves printing of some type. Your prints are always inspiring.

    1. Thank you, I have a different favorite every day.

  4. I am loving your circles and your landscapes. Now that I am in Florida, I think you need a palm tree or two. 🌴
