More youtube videos

Yesterday I posted 2 more videos to youtube.  These videos are a continuation of the series "Expanding the Digital Print to Uncommon Surfaces" .  The first 3 were about coating, printing carrier sheets and then the results.  These last 2 are about the process that takes me from planning to assembling once the prints are finished.  Check it out and  view these videos  Part 4 and Part 5.

The piece that was shown in the 5th part video, changed early this morning.  One of those instant inspirations had me back in my studio to add to the piece.  It ended up having a layer underneath that is a digital print on copper screen with a border of digitally printed hand made paper.  The picture at the top of the post shows the final composition of the video piece.

The other pictures here are a some of the other pages in the start of Book of Forests 1.  This is the first piece of the series with several more to come.  As the piece continues,  it will lead me as far as the layout of the book.  The pages will be 10" x 10" on this one, but who knows what will happen from here.  

Some of the materials used above:

Digital prints on watercolor paper, tyvec, lace paper, metallic crinkle paper, copper mesh, hand made skins, beverage cans and hand made paper

Jute twine, hemp cord, crocheted light weight hemp, copper wire, hardware cloth and waxed linen


  1. Kathyanne, I left a comment about your smorgasbord of printed materials on "Expanding the Digital Print to Uncommon Surfaces Part 4 (youtube)." Your many materials are, to my eye, incredibly beautiful! The books look like something an Ent (humanoid trees from J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings) would have produced!

    They look as if they really come from a petrified forest, because you have taken texture to a new level. You must be so pumped: your work is going exceedingly well.
    "Expanding the Digital Print to Uncommon Surfaces Part 5" gives us a glimpse into your ingenuity at combining your materials and attaching them to each other. It's obvious that anyone attending one of your workshops will be taking a fast ride into seldom visited territory.

  2. Thanks, Carol, this is a subject, near and dear to my heart. In posting the videos, I gave a cursory look at what I do for my process.

    My plan is to create more tutorials for my site, so that I can put out more of how others can learn to manipulate images. Now I would like to teach more of mixing the surfaces in workshops on the internet as well as in classrooms. Youtube was just another way of getting out there one step at a time and hopefully enlightening others on the way:)
