Paper miniatures

I started to make some abstracted paper miniatures of my printmaking equipment, playing with the composition and components of the ‘print’ starting very basic with a roller and scrapers, to building up to scraper handles, cutting mat, scalpel and a tube of glue. After spending a lot of time looking and playing with these compositions i’m unsure if i want to just limit myself with printmaking tools/the everyday or if i want to play more with the abstract. I added a few abstract shapes into the composition towards the end but it didn’t look right, the mix of ‘the real’ and abstract just didn’t work for me. I’m really enjoying what im making at the moment because i think it relates closer to my interests in 3D form, and the process of printmaking and collage.
