I'm not sure this really fits into the crafty label...I did it for art when I was at school. I went lino (or do you guys call it block printing?) crazy...the final piece was printed onto A3 paper. It sured me of lino printing for a long time, but my fingers are starting to itch for some again...I'm thinking of doing some general purpose blank cards or notecards with illustrations of each season or flowers that are in season at particular times of year...I love love poinciannas and jacarandas and flame trees!

This piece was done in pieces...I used 6 separate blocks. I'm thinking of maybe modifying a few of these designs (esp. the top one...it feels nice and relaxed to me, sitting outside on the verandah with a cup of coffee and the paper and reeeeelaxing....maybe it'd be a good 'happy holidays' card) The mountain block and the waterliliy ones should be easy to modify...although when I think about it, the original blocks might be a little too big for cards...I'd have to re-cut new blocks. A project for the not so near future (darn that uni and stoopid exams)

Here we go...


Enjoy!...please do leave a comment...Cheesy...or a suggestion?

um... wow?   Shocked

There are a couple images in there that are very familiar to me (as in they show up in my work, too). Mostly the hand with a pencil and the girl climbing a building.

The hand w/ pencil would make a good imprint logo for your cards (like the hallmark stamp that's on the back of everything)

I love the lino print look.

Wow- I made a few lino prints in school and wound up with stiches in my arm (i'm so clumsy) but they were NOTHING compared to yours - I love them!!!!!! The artwork is great and the detail is amazing!
two kudos!

I know this is a big post...but I really want to thank each of you! I am super appreciative of your thoughtful comments. ((hugs!))

...Thank you so much!

Thank you! I love drawing hands with pencils...if I were to use mine as an imprint logo, I'd really want to make it so that it was a left hand (cos I'm lefthanded). I meant for it to turn out as a lefty when I made it but I had a lotta trouble with the composition and mirror imaging right back when I began carving...Wink but I got there in the end...with a righty on the page (also when you go to draw the hand...I have to use my right hand as the model)...heheh. I love the feel of lino printing too!

Awww, thanks so much! Two kudos?? I appreciate it...hehe, yeah sometimes the carving tools can be dangerous! One of my super clumsy (but beautiful) friends somehow managed to get a small cut on her face - she was leaning way over her work! Scary stuff! You get used to being safe with it after a while though...when I get out my lino tools next I'll be sure to post something up here Cheesy

Hehe, thanks...anytime Wink
