Four Found Fossils

I have spent hours experimenting with different combinations of the images and backgrounds. It is a very good exercise for learning about overlays registration etc. I will post more of the stages on Printdaily next week, but for now here are four fossils prints based on the fragments I found here at Grafham.

A is for Ammonite
_bg-amm

B is for Belemnite

bg-bertie- 

C is for Crinoid

bg-bel-

D is for Devils Toenail

_bg-dt

All are reduction Lino prints: Image 6 x 4 inches

I am not quite finished with the fossils yet and am playing about with ideas for a small concertina form which will use the single prints in some way.

bg-concertina

This was a first rough idea.
I hope to get something more done next week. I do like these little book forms.
