As much as I love using the ready to use cyanotype papers found at Dick Blick, I've been itching to mix my own chemicals so that I can print on watercolor paper.

As it usually goes the first time you try something new, I had a few bumps along the way but I've had a bit of success as well. One of my favorites is this hydrangea print below.
I've also been collaging and painting with some of my other pieces and loving them, too!
This time of figuring out how to best use my supplies is often the most frustrating but also rewarding part of my creative practice!
