For this line of paper goods, I was thinking about Relief style of printmaking. I was inspired by the idea of a simple design that is carved into wood or linoleum blocks and repeatedly stamped. However, I wanted more depth to the design than what a simple stamp would create and so with Relief printmaking my inspiration, I painted the pattern using Guache so that the watery texture of the paint and natural gradients of colors blending together would lend a softness and handmade touch to the design.
