Class

I'm taking a class in monoprinting  from Susan Sorrell at http://www.joggles.com/  These are a few of the prints I made this week.Of course, this one is my favorite-my colors. It's amazing what you can use as a resist. The little circles with the hole in the middle are page reinforcers.This one also has some foil on it.

From the comments and emails I received, people are wondering how a small woman can control a 90 pound dog. A vet a long time and several German Sheppard's ago said that since I was small, I needed to show the puppy that I was alpha-the boss. To do this I needed to lay him on his side and hold him down through all the wiggles puppies do to try to get away until he gave up. Do it every couple of days, and they know you are the boss. It does work.  The gentle leader leash also is a big help. It does over their nose and the top of their head, so if they pull, their head goes down. It mimics the action of a momma dog.

I've been reading from a few posts up - all beautiful works, including your class experiments and your bead project!

And thanks for the info about your dog learning who is alpha. I could have used that with our little alpha. He knows now but still has his moments of alpha when he gets excited.
