Slate worker’s cottage gocco prints

Here are the slate worker’s cottage Gocco prints I did a couple of days ago.  This is the original photo:

I cropped this, and couldn’t bring myself to stick to the rather drab colours … the screen started off rather colourful and I added black as I went along, and mixed it into the remaining colour left on the screen to make the progression…

I also printed it on to different coloured paper which made for interest:

This one is on handmade Indian Khadi paper.

And I have some decorative scrapbooking paper which I printed one on… looks like it’s in a snowscene!

I do like putting in a photo of all the cards drying in the rack:

    I really like the effects the different coloured paper has on the print 🙂
