Laced

Oh the things we do; fingers laced and tummy in place. Just finished carefully punching holes and adding ribbon to today's print; "Laced".

The print was created using two plates that were inked up separately, stacked together, and then run through the press as one unit. The main plate is a collagraph with the smaller inset image created on copper using ImagON photopolymer film. I used a bookbinding hole punch to create perfect openings for the ribbon and included a couple of small metal eyelets. A pale pink watercolor wash was added to the girdle.

  5. I love it! It's textural, feminine, and thought provoking. Reminds me of my nan Davis who always wore a girdle!
