Multiple, Shaped Plates:
Print multiple plates in one press pass, on a single ground
Your plates can be inked or not inked, cut to any shape or size.

Out my bedroom window, an experiment with technique. The content is uninspiring I know but I was more worried about other things. Getting ink on the paper where I didn't want it to be, uneven inking of plates, getting the prints straight, no tearing of paper between prints, all of these things went wrong and more. As I cleaned up after each mistake I thought about all the exciting things I could do once I had worked out the basics. I promise myself to be braver next time.

Looks pretty good to me - mistakes or no. Keep going.

Hmm, lets see what happens, the way is not clear.
