This mat board collagraph started as a doodle (see photos of the process, with links to supplies below). I’m surrounded by young women with babies, meandering different chapters of motherhood. It’s fascinating & nostalgic & heart-warming to watch these little families grow and transform with the addition of wiggly beings. We make art from the happenings around us, and it documents our lives in a beautiful way. What’s in your life this season that informs and enhances your art-making?
If you’re interested in learning more about making a collagraph print from mat board, here’s a link to a playlist of youtube videos on my channel. You’ll find a variety of carving and inking demos there, and every tutorial has a “show more” link under the video-window on youtube to expand a description area that’s full of links to supplies needed for each project.
