Surprises in the making

I love unexpected finds. I bought a $2.00 grab bag at Michael’s this autumn, while shopping for craft supplies for my daughter. She has taken a liking to try to find ghosts in house after Halloween, and I could feel in the bag, lots of flashlights she could play with. The extra bonus was lots of wooden letters and signs, meant for scrapbooking. I thought I would give them away and then remembered a printmaking book that utilized styrofoam letters on plexiglass to make prints. I thought, why not do the same and make a reverse woodblock print? So, all winter I have been making wrapping paper and small books with these &, @, *, %, # signs and more. In the process I have re-learned how to print well in the trying and making. Merry Christmas!
