Pink Heart print. I have just added it to my Etsy shop. I wasn't sure if my first attempt was a fluke, but I now have been able to print several times successfully on the handmade Saint-Armand watercolour paper. It takes time and care feeding it through the printer because of its thickness and the deckle edges but the results are absolutely amazing. I cannot stop staring at these prints. They really look like original watercolours.
Because it is handmade paper, it means that each print is a slightly different, one-of-a-kind work of art. I wish you could feel the paper. It is thick, soft, luxurious and has a beautiful grain. There are four deckle edges. It is exquisite paper and is made right here in Montreal by the Saint-Armand paper mill. Do I sound excited?
I have painted on Saint-Armand paper before, but it wasn't until this past weekend that I thought of trying to print on it.
Anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows that I have had an up and down relationship with my printer. Well today I am a happy woman and I wanted to share the love by giving away one Pink Heart print (the exact one in the top photo). It measures approximately 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches. I will initial it on the front and then sign and date it on the back.

I am not responding to each comment the way I normally do as it will be easier for me to do the draw if my comments aren't mixing up the numerical order. I just want everyone to know that I am reading them all and appreciate them so much!
