Day 29

Today I needed to make a start on my page for my Embroiderers’ Guild Travelling Book. I’d decided I want to do a piece inspired by the pears in my long sketchbook, so I bought some pears on huge way home, and set about printing.

I printed a bunch of pears, using a range of stamps and texture tools. I was happiest with the Gelli plate prints on deli paper, whereas last time the prints directly from the pear worked better.

I printed 15 deli paper pears in the end:

As well as some nice page beginnings in my lovely long sketchbook, which is good, because I have coloured every square inch of the previous pages!

I also bonded three of the deli paper pears to calico, and I’m going to stitch into these for my travelling book page.
