For Friday's art group, we did some monoprinting, using this method. I'm just going to share photos today so I can spend some time this morning going through all your art pen pal e-mails. They make me happy! And thanks, everyone, for your comments yesterday. I really, really appreciate your kind and thoughtful words.

P.S. Euphoria is giving away a copy of SouleMama's amazing book, The Creative Family. If you don't have it already, head over and leave a comment to be entered into her drawing.

    When you blogged about monoprinting on acrylic box frames, I set out to get some. What I found (at the dollar store!!) were the type of frames that are a folded sheet of acrylic. These made great mini-easels for the kids to paint; then we lifted the prints. The next day we did it again, but added small spray bottles of water to spray the pictures just before lifting the print. It was a very different print, more blended edges of the different paints. The third day we added Q-tips to draw in the paint before lifting the prints. Thanks for the great idea, Jean; we got a week’s worth of art from it!

    I love this – we were just doing monoprints yesterday on a small piece of polished granite using watercolors . My daughter was so excited that she took one of her “stone prints” to her preschool teacher and told her all about the project. Thank you for your wonderful blog!

    Quick question about your rollers…are they foam or hard rubber brayers? Any recommendations on where to get them on-line?
