Waiting for Irene to leave! Printmaking – Step One

Waiting for a storm to pass, especially one of this magnitude, can be nerve racking. So what does an artist do with all that ‘waiting’ time? Well, I thought it would be a good opportunity to spend some quality time making art! Printmaking, to be exact!
So how does one tackle printmaking? Well first you decide on a design. A simple drawing of anything works well for those who have never tried this before but want to try something new.
I sketched a guitar. Then, when I was happy with the drawing, I went over the drawing with a fine tipped pen. Next, I photocopied the image. I will use the photocopy in the next step.

    very interesting Ruthie…I spent Irene’s visit in my craft cave as well…but I was stroking paper, gazing at my punches and catching up on making cards, planning for this fall.
