The other day I got very excited because I cut and printed my very first lino cutting! Yay!
If you know me well, you'll know that things like this make me very happy. You'll also know that when I do something new I become OBSESSED.
So it's only fitting that I spent most of my weekend cutting bits of lino, stabbing my thumb with a blade and printing stuff! Here's some sneaky peeks... (the thing I really want to show you, I can't. It's my design for my Christmas cards...)
Oh, and just a quick note on where the whole lino cutting idea came from... The Mollie Makes Christmas book. Buy it. Seriously. RRP is £10 and it is so worth that!
So this Dala horse was originally an embroidery design from the Christmas issue of Mollie Makes (starting to sound like an advert for them!) from a whole year ago... and whilst I LOVE this design... I wanted something of my own... which I am not sharing with you all just yet...
But I seriously couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
This was entirely the boyfriends idea. (in fact it was my idea, he was just the one to cut it out)
Then these little fishes happened... I rather like them.
So there we have it! Some, but not all of my lino cuttings from the weekend. If you are inspired, I really would suggest buying the Mollie Makes book, it's lovely. And all the rest of the projects in there are inspiring too! And if I can do something which takes this much care, and only stab myself in the hand once, then you can to! Hurrah!
