Around here lately + Printmaking Unleashed GIVEAWAY


Hi friends! 

I have some serious catching up to do in blog-landia. So many things to update and share. . . My LifeBook lesson {Make*Shift Magic} went live earlier this month which has been thrilling to experience as the student pages / interpretations continue to trickle in. I am gearing up for my next journey :: packing up my circus and heading back to my beloved Sanford studio / shop, my beloved bicycle (Jolla! more on her soon). I honestly couldn't be happier with all we've manifested for our lives these past 5 - 10 years, and the continuous practice of holding the joy, clearing space, doing my work, and GettingOutOfMyOwnWay <--- what it all boils down to.

Without further ado: the fabulous and funky Traci Bautista has birthed a new book :: PRINTMAKING UNLEASHED. I am thrilled to be a part of the book-launch-love :: sharing my experience with her book over on her blog today :: and some projects. (((I am also hosting a GIVEAWAY of her book right here)))  Leave a comment below with your favorite printmaking technique // what you'd like to learn. . . and for bonus entries >> share this giveaway on IG / FB / etc!

  1. My favourite printing techniques is to clear off my paint-covered stamps and stencils on large sheets of paper to create interesting backgrounds. Does that count?

  2. My favorite printmaking technique is to doodle on gelli prints. I then cut them up and use in collages. i would love to learn more transfer techniques.

  7. Must say I loved the ipad drawing in the movie - that was so amazing to see you "work" like that. Fun! I enjoy printing with simple things, like thread spools and other round objects.

    Would love to win this book!

    Take care!

  10. My current fave technique is gelli printing. Love love love. I want to keep learning and expanding with the gelli plate and I want to buy a glue gun and try the glue stencils.

  11. My favorite technique is one that I accidentally discovered! It happened on day 2 (Monoprint) of the Printmaking Unleashed challenge. I was doing my regular thing- scribbling some graffiti on a phone book page- I call it "Sgraffito as a stamping technique". Scribble in some wet paint and use it as a stamp onto another piece of paper. It's simple but produces some interesting textures and color blending! ( There are more photos of this process on my Monoprinting Madness blog post. ) Thank for the chance to win, Carissa!

  15. Your video was so cool Carissa. I need to practice making faces but I would like to learn to carve my own stamps. It just looks so intimidating, so, I don't even try. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous book.
