Block Printed Layer on Postcards
These three postcards were printed at the same time. I usually just keep printing until I run out of paint. I have found keeping a stack of "works in progress" and scrap paper (such as the inside wrappers from my chocolate bars) is a good practice - because then I have some "go to" papers for using up any paint I have leftover from another project. Even so, sometimes I find myself scrambling for something to print on and I will overprint most anything. This is how I come up with interesting papers to tear and add to my mixed media postcards. Once these three postcards are dry, I will set them aside and at some point - I will return to them to add some doodles, maybe some screen printing or rubbing or scribbles, lines or dots. These will go into my "works in progress" pile and I will keep adding to them until I feel they are finished.
