I finished my Poppies print today and I'm not as happy with it as I could be.
No, it's not entirely dreadful or anything, I like the design and the way the colours came together, but it's just not what I envisioned and that's always frustrating. It's not a clean as I want and the edges, even though they're clean and sharp on the block, are ragged. I covered my ink issues etc. in last week's post so I'm not going to beat that drum again. I'll simply take it as an opportunity to figure out why things went a bit sideways with this print and work out a fix for next time.
I'll have a week or two of down time anyway; next weekend Saturday R and I are starting our much-discussed (and two years overdue) living room reno: new paint for the ceiling and walls, new crown molding, new carpet. The weekend will go to packing up everything in the living room and stuffing it into the bedroom so I don't expect I'll have time to print. That may just be a good thing. But I will have lots of time to think about things like printing ink and paper etc.
