The Mixed Media art group met for our usual 2nd Saturday art group. We made collagraph plates but I had to leave before they got them printed. For my post on making collagraph plates, see here.
We used mat board as a base as I thought the craft foam that I had used in my previous post got smushed to easily in the press.
Sabyl and Simone are hard at work.
Sabyl's plate. I really liked this idea, so I started a plate with string, but forgot to take a picture. I will add it when I finish the plate.
Simone hard at play.
Simone's plate. I brought embossing folders since I was using my die cutting/embossing machine as a press. You can see she ran the hair and dress through the machine using the embossing folders to get texture.
Laurie used actual leaves on her plate.
It was a fun day and I was sad I had to leave early. I hope they bring their prints to the next meeting.
