I have done a bit of Gocco printing this week – it’s such fun! Except for cleaning the screens at the end of printing, that is….
As usual, I used some altered photos.
This one is of the harbour at Honfleur in Normandy, France, where we went for a week last August.
That one on the left is a bit unusual. I had a bit of bubble wrap hanging round (there’s always bubble wrap hanging round in my workroom!) so I did a print on the bubble wrap then printed it on to paper. The bubble wrap print left a bit of an imprint on the Gocco screen and the next print turned out like that. Here it is below – I like the effect, unintentional though it was!
I also printed some Moleskine journals which will find their way on to Etsy sooner or later… when I’ve got a better series of photos of them!
I like this print I made on textural old lawyer’s paper with cloth embedded into it:
Yesterday I made a lot of prints of these skyscrapers we saw in London:
The one on the left is on a black Moleskine journal, printed and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The one on the right is also on black but using white embossing powder. I like the way you can use embossing powder with Gocco inks because they don’t dry too quickly.
On the left is printed on ordinary card, on the right on some paper which I coloured with inks during my City & Guilds course.
I even printed on this ribbon! Nothing’s safe when I’ve got that Gocco machine out on the table…
I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting as frequently as before. For some reason every time I publish a post via Windows Live Writer it takes several error messages before a successful attempt.
The latest issue of Fibre and Stitch magazine is out now, and I have an article in it, entitled Twinkling Windows! Instructions on how to make this small wallhanging using Tyvek…
