Little Lovely Leftovers

22 Feb

leftovers

Just finished stitching a set of 15 little prints for the Leftovers VI international print exchange organised by the irrepressible Amy Nack at Wingtip Press in Boise, Idaho, USA. The premise of Leftovers is to use up some of those scraps of beautiful printmaking papers that are often left over from our projects. I have put together an edition of 15 little rubber stamp prints that I developed from an original screenprint. I printed them onto fragments of Japanese Shiohara paper and then stitched them onto leftover pieces of Somerset, using my antique Singer sewing machine. Artists from all over the world participate in this each year and Amy puts together a touring exhibition of each year’s Leftovers that travels the globe. If you’re quick, there’s still time to enter.

Small Sprogs And Petit Prints

Husb and I are babysitting two little relatives for a couple of days. It’s completely exhausting. How do parents manage with small sprogs the whole time? We took them to West Wales, firstly to the Honey Farm and then the beach at New Quay on Cardigan Bay. We had fun!

Before we left, I received a parcel from the most excellent Wingtip Press in Idaho, USA. It was a dozen original prints from the Leftovers 5 print exchange. I am so delighted with them. It’s an annual event where printmakers across the planet produce a special edition and in return receive a surprise package of miniature, petit prints.
