Freshly Pressed

For the past 4 weeks, I been taking a Letterpress class an Minnesota Center for Book Arts.  This whole class was focused on learning to make and print with Polymer plates.
It's been a quick 4 weeks.  I've learned SO much.
I can't even begin to explain how my love affair with Letterpress has grown.
I have so many ideas of what to do next.  I don't know what to do first. 

Here's what I've been printing.

Week 1 & 2 - Print Diamonds
The first part of this print I forgot to take pictures.  It's a simple diamond shape printed in a teal.

I created a scratch negative for the second color of the print.  Experimenting with lines and movement.

Here is the Finished Product.

These were cut in half, scored and folded. 

Week 3 

CB showing me how to set up my plate and paper for the first color. 

First color down. 

Week 4 - Second color and The Final Product 

Final size of paper 4" x 5".
Printed on Crane Lettra Pearl. 

The video below is of my class print partner, Kristilyn, doing the first color of her Chevron print.  The second part was a blind emboss.

I can't wait to go out and print more!
