block printing

Block printing is my portable printing craft of choice - when I need a printing fix, I whip out the carving tools, some rubber and some ink and I'm happy! Yesterday, I carved out a couple of new designs ...




I want to re-carve the circus tent design - I like the concept, but I want more detail.

Wishing all of you a lovely weekend. Thanks so much for your comments and emails these past weeks - it has (at times) kept me sane to know you are all there while I am a stranger in a strange land.

You make it all sound so easy. I'm still scarred by my year 7 art teacher who Lino Cut her hand her half with the tools of death, so i'll leave it to you to create these. Love Posie

Twill tape block printing is one of those crafts I love - but am really really poor at. Not that I mind, really. I just wish I could get the awesome detail that you get!

Wow, great ink coverage! I'm jealous. I love the simplicity of the designs.
