Lots of Color.

Who'd have thought that playing in the mud could be so much fun!

Above is a clay print (printed from a slab of clay) that I created after attending a local artist's workshop. I took the day to learn and visit with artist, Mitch Lyons. He had a one day workshop on the Clay Print technique. Wonderful technique for printing from color applied to a clay slab.

He has been doing clay prints for over 40 years now and has tested all kinds of approaches for this particular art technique. He shared all this wealth of knowledge with us, while also giving us the technique to do it ourselves.

So much fun.

And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
