Back to printing!

It's been a crazy couple of weeks, with lots of orders and work to get ready for Christmas shows and the on-line shops, and it seems everything has happened at once! It seemed that i was a one woman production line- making cards, bunting and notebooks every evening and packing up parcels for delivery.
All this has been great, it's always good to be busy, but it does leave very little time to print anything new. There is of course lots of other ways (and less messy) to produce work (see the collages below) but nothing beats the excitement of producing a new print and seeing that image for the first time once it comes through the press-or mangle!

These little prints have been a great way to fulfil my addiction to the printing process- i also enjoyed printing on different shades and colours of paper adding a different quality to the print all together.
