2 new print blocks

The blocks were made from purchased children's erasers which were glued onto wooden blocks using double sided carpet tape. The above print was done in white textile paint over another print.

Journal cover

I've been experimenting with techniques from Sherrill Kahn's book 'Creative Mixed Media'. The round embellishment on the right side of the embroidery is made from a painted cotton makeup pad. The yarns are glued on with matte medium.
