Final Proof of the 'Red Squirrel' print

I am really pleased with how this has turned out. I love the byzantine quality of the gold tissue paper.

The Fridge of Indecision

Welcome to the fridge of indecision. I have tried various permutations trying to get this image right. I have printed completely on red tissue paper, then gold tissue paper. I reversed the light and dark to make the squirrel less insipid, I then made both layers dark, then piled on chine-colle in gold and silver. Tried thick paper and thin paper. Basically I have had a bit of a lark today! The Fridge of indecision awaits my husband and daughters opinions and anyone else who has tuppence to add.

Putting a Squirrel on it

So as the leaves turn golden and fall to the ground my mind turns to (coughs) Christmas cards. I had this idea of woodland with a small red animal (fox, squirrel, bird) nestling. I find chine-colle is perfect to adding a festive touch of colour. I am not quite there yet as the red tissue paper is a touch too vibrant. Will keep you updated.
