New Christmas Card Designs

New Christmas Card Design
I have been busy designing and carving new block prints for my Christmas card range. Here is a sneak peek at one of the designs..

This is how I start a new design. A rough sketch in pencil which I then transfer on to the lino by rubbing the back of the paper and leaving the pencil markings on the lino.

I was going to make it a cleaner image, and tidy up all the black marks around the letters but I have decided I like it that way. Now I have to get printing the design on cards!

I'm Back

My Market Stall

I am now back to work after a much needed break from designing, printing and drawing. I was feeling burnt out and I really needed a break from everything, mostly the computer and the internet, to recharge and find inspiration and the urge to create again.

I feel much more ready and excited to take on the Christmas rush and get to work.

Thank you to everybody who visited my stall at the Handmade Canberra markets last month! It was so nice to meet you all. Also a huge thanks to the hugely talented photographer Erin Dando who took these gorgeous photos of my stall! Check out her website, I just love every picture on there. xx
