Happy New Year 2015

I'm trying out Yupo paper for the first time today. Apparently it's not actually paper at all, but rather a synthetic material-polypropylene. I've read that watercoloists are using it, but that any water based medium works. It's interesting and fun to play around a bit on the first day of the new year. This one's all about the brayer, squeegee, and inks, which I've never worked with before. I'm not sure this is quite done; I don't have a few of the supplies I'd like to have and I'm trying to figure out what I can use to improvise,  but I feel like I'm heading in the right direction.
