"Octopus" - Art Elements Theme Challenge

This month it was my turn to chose the theme of our monthly challenge at Art Elements. It is summer time and we are finally back on Formentera this year... So what would be a more perfect fit than "Octopus"?!

And of course... As much as I love this theme, I didn't even manage to fulfill a third on my to-do idea list. Work was a little bit overwhelming since I dared to take vacation ;)

Nevertheless I played a little bit with watercolor, I made some tentacles and a tentacle cover for my last blog post at Art Elements (with a tutorial how I made them)...

.... aaaaand most importantly - I managed to carve by biggest printing plate ever (definitely not my last)!

That was daring and the blue carving blanks are not cheap... But I love it! I learned a lot and also see what I could have made better...

Test prints in between... 

But there always is and I am ok with that. Learning needs practice.

Playing with adding some color.... More then I am back home again.

I will play more with the plate when I am back... And I will look for some treats here for this month's winner (by chance).
Thank you for joining us and please have a look at everyone's blog and their creations! :)
