This one is much better than the one I've had since Christmas. After chatting to Nicole, my darling daughter, about printing onto felt and fabric over dinner, last night, I decided to get my finger out and give it a go. Not on felt, that's Nicole's thing, but on some quilters calico that I had hanging around.. As you do.
Our inspiration is a book that I borrowed from the library called Print-Stitch-Techniques... I love it, have a look... Print-Stitch-Techniques-Hand-printing-Stitching - Janet Edmonds
I have had all the 'stuff' for a long, long time but as always it got put on my to do list... Which I might say is as long as my arm. So one of my new years resolutions will be to tick some off of my incredibly long list....
I decided to try with a lino block of a stag beetle
Printed onto washed calico, I just need to give it a good press it to set the fabric ink. I shall definitely be doing this again... wish I'd tried it along time ago... I think I've got the bug...
What do you think?
I would love to hear from you, good or bad....Even if it's only to hear where I've gone wrong and how I could improve my print.
