So it was time for another lino cutting session, I have done a bit of research and worked out how to plan an all over repeat, one that continues on all side of the block. I know how to do it, but the execution needs a little practice. However I am happy with how it turned out.

Normal people choose a simple design to workout the bugs. Nah..I choose a ridiculously complicated one and eyeballed the registration,

still I like it

The first one in plain black

the second was the mix of red and black above, with a little hand colouring of the tops of the mushrooms

the final one was just using up red ink, hence the fade out at the bottom corner.

These are speedball screen printing fabric paints on an old thrift store cotton sheet.

close up of the design

No idea what I will do with the fabric now.

aw thanks guys...

opinions needed. I was thinking of cutting another piece so I can colour in the tops of the two mushrooms (as per picture one, which I did with a brush) what do you think? Would it be too much to have red tops on the black and white fabric? I could do a different colour, maybe yellow or orange on the red fabric. Or should I do more of the mushrooms with coloured tops?

edelC, these are gorgeous! I am totally inspired now -- thank you! Cheesy

I like the mushrooms both ways, personally. But it would be pretty to have red tops on black and white fabric. The yellow or orange would look pretty '70s, which would also be awesome.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
