first the news. Castle Peeps, won't be released until April. Boo Hiss Boo! I know, I know... If you think that you are growing impatient, think of me, your littlest Lizzy, who grows weary of always waiting. But, in anticipation, starting the New Year, I will do a new tutorial each month for something grand using Castle Peeps, so when it finally arrives, you will know exactly what to do. There will be a plan. I love a good plan. Don't you?
my little update is this. I've finally started doing some monoprinting. For those of you who don't know what monoprinting is, it's essentially painting on a piece of Plexiglas, applying a great deal of pressure, from either a press, your hand, a car... or even a pencil, by applying the pressure you transfer the ink from the glass to paper, or fabric, or whatever. Also, because it's a "mono" print, there can only be one. You know... like the Highlander. So each piece is an original, like a painting.
I've got to tell you though, printing these past couple of days has made me happier than I can remember being in a long time. It's so fulfilling to produce work that you are happy and excited about.
My pieces aren't dry quite yet, but I will give you a little look.
More to come soon! and soon a shop update!
