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 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!

Oh, and if you can't get a hold of me on Tuesdays, it cause I'm printing.
