In my creative space this week I am trying to remember the fine art of lino cutting and printing.
When Indi's class were lino cutting in art class late last year, I made a note to try it again before too long myself. The other day I asked the art teacher to borrow the tools and a few scraps of lino and here we are.
I haven't been near the tools or the lino since I was at school, but the smell of the stuff and the feel of the cutter gliding through the lino take me right back there.
The plan is to jazz up some of the bed linens that I have been sewing with that have seen better days. While I have some bright colourful sheets, many of the sheets I have been finding in op shops are faded and worn and need a bit of a new life.
Its very early days still and I am in desperate need of a roller to apply the paint and a way to hold the lino so it doesn't smudge as it prints, but I am a bit excited at the possibilities.
Pepper is creating her own master pieces next to me.
Of course, I have been crocheting a trim or two along the way too.
I hope you are having a creative Thursday. To see some other creative spaces or perhaps play along too, click on over to Kirsty's.
