First pass - catspaw coverlet background color in thalo green, thinned slightly with transparent medium.
As the theme for the exchange is "leftovers" I like the idea of recycling leftover blocks, in this case the two blocks for Foggy.
I went with a greenish color for the background and I'm thinking of a grapy-purple or magenta for the kitty cat. I'll see what looks good when the backgrounds dry (which in this weather, could be now).
Most of the pieces of paper are 2"x7", but they vary (they are leftover bits cut down from other projects). I only need 14 for the exchange. The others will make nice bookmarks. ;-]
Finally. Nothing like a pressing deadline to get me, er, pressing.
Foggy ("The fog comes on little cat feet.") is what I'm going to use for the Leftovers III exchange. It's made up of two blocks -- the background, an historic woven coverlet pattern called "Cat Tracks and Snail Trails" or "Catspaw," and the cat block, which is an homage to our late cat Foggy.
Leftovers III uses up leftover pieces of printmaking paper, and I like the idea of using "recycled" blocks for it. Here's the original print:
I'll play with the blocks. Print the coverlet block, then add the cat, maybe at an angle. I'll see what moves me. Maybe play around with colors.
Took me awhile to find the blocks. I'm certainly not an organized printmaker. ;- j I knew they were somewhere at the bottom of a basket-o-blocks, and they were. Found some others I'd wondered where they'd gotten to, so it was a productive morning's spelunking.
