Thanks Scuttlebutt (yay fellow printmakers!). I use water-based inks. I work in my home and am not keen on having solvents around. I use a Japanese baren to print on Japanese paper and I find the water-based inks work well for me.
So glad to participate again this year! Great pages so far!
I'm really happy to be able to create something to raise funds for cancer research. Since I sent my page my step-mother (a non-smoker) was diagnosed with lung cancer. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer. It's so rampant a disease it feels good to do anything proactive about it. I think alteredmommy's annual Book of Hope is a beautiful thing.
