Somewhere in the hustle and bustle of the holidays~
I was playing.
I'm sure there was a list of things needing attention...
Maybe it was the day the roast was very dry?
Distraction is the cause of many a dry or burnt meals!
Or maybe I was playing on the day set aside to dust...
Ah, keep the lights down low if someone stops by!
Laundry piles indicate I was busy with "other" chores...
When I was in high school I enjoyed Linoleum Printing.
Carving those slippery, tough blocks...
Who needed aerobics?
By the time I had a design hacked out
I was sweatin'!
Through the years they have manufactured the
linoleum in a softer block... I prefer these new
ultra-soft carve blocks for little fun projects that
keep me from my housework.
I could however use the aerobic workout (giggle)
There are several soft products...
Some artists even use white erasers~
I draw on the block with a soft pencil.
Working in negative space is fun!
Simply leave what you want to print~
Most craft stores carry a starter kit.
Many of the tips and one Speedball tool are from my
college supply box... they haven't changed much.
Hope your weekend is wonderful!
