Hand Carved Leaves

I hand carved a block which if I print it side by side will continue a sequence of branches and leaves. I so enjoyed carving this block, printing it, and then playing with the different prints!!! Let me know what you think.

Here is the carved block (you will notice that the beginning and ending of the branches are the same distance from the edges so that they can be the continuation of the other if printed in sequence):

Here are some "papers" I printed initially but have not done anything with yet:

And here are some finished works after playing with the prints.

All of these have 3 prints of the hand-carved block in sequence as a base. Some have additional prints on top.

It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
