More Printing...and Nostalgia

Sorry for the long absence - I seem to have been so busy lately, yet not accomplishing very much! Anyway, here is my Red Riding Hood plate with a second colour plate printed on top. I didn't manage to register it very well but it was a good exercise to learn how to do it. You have to make two plates exactly the same size, do a proof of the black one and from that proof, offset a printed image onto the second plate, from which you stop out all the stuff you don't want to be in colour.

Anyway just off to scrub a bathroom now...what joy. Oh and I am listening to Lastfm at the moment - a recent discovery. You put in a band or genre you like and it creates a little radio station for you. This morning I have been listening to "Blondie" radio...oh my goodness it gave me gems from the past I'd forgotten all about! For instance, now it's playing "Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads - I haven't heard that track for years! And "Happy House" by Siouxsie and the Banshees! And hearing the B52s "Rock Lobster" made me feel so nostalgic I felt physically sick. Sigh...where have the years gone?! I want to wear all black again and be cool and rebellious! (Instead of wearing black to hide bulges and stains).

Have a great day everyone! (Ooh - it's playing 11.59 now!)

(Later: It's playing "Another Nail For My Heart" by Squeeze...I feel "past"sick again and I have to turn it off...)
