More Than Kitchen Lino





So I have returned back to my arts roots - I have had this project stored away for a long time - building up my supplies till I had the time to sit - and carve. I haven't done any lino cutting since high school, back in those days there was that traditional lino that took forever to carve and gave you blisters. This new fan-dangled type is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It carves like a hot knife in butter - no blisters here. It is darker on the top and as you carve the lighter inner revels itself. This has a two way benifit - you can see a lot easier of the future finished product as what you are leaving behind becomes the print {but backwards of course} and secondly it show how deep you are carving.




















I love - love - LOVE! working with these. After my first few prints I got the hang of it and now I am itching to do some more designs and printing. I will be selling them at next weekends Made with Love  but I have a feeling these will go further - perhaps in my madeit shop and perhaps further. I am really excited by these and have been collection old books and music sheets to print on - now that's one op shop item that we are not running short on around here. Below is some that I printed onto fabrics. I am yet to try their colour fastness for use in my sewing but they will defiantly be turned into art works fo sho....wooo!
