Having just been to the beach, the sea shells with ridges were on my mind. So was the seaweed, but sadly, I didn't bring any home to play with.
Here, we simply covered the outside of the shell in ink, and rolled it on the paper. I think we could have created a fuller print if we added a softer layer underneath the paper. As it was, we had a layer of cardboard and a dish towel under our paper. I was really happy with the smattering of partial shell prints, though. This is a definite contender for our printed wall art collection.
