Thanks for popping in. Thanks for watching the TV shows today if you did. And thanks also for buying our stamps if you did. In the words of Gloria Gaynor, We will survive!
Friday’s blog a private peek, right. Well, let me show you my third run at lino cutting. Gradually gettin gthe hang of it. A astamp set is certainly in the pipeline!
All you lovely SHAC Shackers will be familiar with the drawing and tracing transfer trick…
Once the image has been drawn on the lino, it’s time to start cutting back.
It takes time and you really have to concentrate. But the process is another very mindful one, which I am really enjoying. It’s the same old same old: the more you do the better you get. And the better you get, the more you want to do!
Now let’s pull a print. You really can’t see what you’ve got until you do this. Very cool. Quite a lot of chatter. I could cut away a little of the background noise…
Or I could leave it. When in doubt, hang about! I shall sleep on it.
I think these would look fabulous in reverse too. You know, where the white is black and where the black is white. Everything is possible. Watch this space!
On that super satisfying note, let me just remind you that the Offer of the Week expires on Sunday night. It is pretty epic: Half price Designer Petite Card Collections. CLICK HERE. At half price plus your Clarity Craft CLub discount, now might be a perfect time to stock pile a little!
I found a piece of artwork that I did a while ago, using the Shenandoah Petite Card. That’s the set where I really tried to create landscapes. Does the job for you really. Look!
Amazing what you can do with a nice leafy frame and a family of little ducks stamps!
Which Stampset is this? It’s from our poetry collection. The ducks are in there with another poem too. CLICK HERE
Yes. What is this life, if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare? I’m slowly figuring it out.
Love and Hugs
