First Collagraph - Not

I wanted to make a collagraph for my mom's birthday ever since I lay my eyes on this technique. So I got the idea, sat down and prepared this to be printed in my printing class:

After much trouble with wiping off the excess paint from this collage to put into the print press I finally got out my much anticipated Collagraph print. And what a disappointment it was (to me at least). Certainly not fit to be given away as a present. But. Luckily for me, I loooooved the painted version of collage so I decided she is going to get that :)

Mushies

I'm getting really drawn to these.

I love the colors on this one - cream, orange and light blue - almost as one of those old fishing boats.
