I realise that I have rambled on for nearly 400 posts. When I first started I had no idea what blogging would be like, I just wanted to do it. Now I know what it is like, I am so glad I did. I have enjoyed getting to know so many friendly and creative bloggers
, and getting to visit so many more. It seems that every week I find another blog to add to my list. It is like all my other collections-ever growing but it all fits in somehow. To celebrate reaching 400, I am having a little giveaway. I have been printing mad since my course last week, and so have made an envelope full of little paper surprises, in the form of printed gift tags and small cards. The mushroom below is printed onto my favourite paper of the moment.
If you are interested in receiving a little package of printed goods, then please leave a comment on this post in the next week. I will draw a name next Tuesday. Thanks!
I have also been playing with photo shop
-this is the strange looking results of that, on a picture of another lino cut. I printed the lino in black ink onto lots of different types of paper, including doilies which worked well, magazine pages and maps. She was inspired by an amazing and quite creepy video called 'Numb'
, I saw on this lovely blog
. The video is so good, and I just loved the puppet girls. I want to make a doll of one but a lino cut was quicker. I just love the smell of lino which is an added bonus. I thought I preferred the rubber but this lino is so soft and lovely to use.
