Recycling to print

A while ago, my daughter took apart the backing to one of her pieces of work. Three square pieces of wood were ripped apart, pulling the dried glue from the backing. The wood now has interesting glue swirls covered in a mesh-type texture.

I decided to save them from the bin as I was sure they’d inspire me to do something one day. Today was the day!
I inked up my gelliplate with lines of red, blue and yellow then pressed the wood into the plate. A piece of paper over the top of the plate produced this. I was pleased with the randomness of recyling. 🙂

It puts a whole new meaning on the saying, ‘One man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure’!
