English Daisy Prints



I printed my English Daisy block today. I just did it with my own hands at my art desk. I don't have a fancy press... which is what makes lino block printing so great. I also like some of the distressed effects from using different textured papers. I plan to use these for a few things: Stationary cards, prints and collage. While sometimes I just print and then leave it, I'm going to try adding watercolors, colored pencil, pastel and other things to them to see what I come up with. Several of the fine art prints will travel to Michigan for a charity sale. Others will pop up on my Etsy shoppe in various forms. No two are a like! I'll post more of these daisies as I put more work into them!

Oh! And this is my 100th post on blogger!

I love these. I am like you, Candace, I also dabble in so many different types of art. I used to make my own Christmas cards with lino cuts. It's been a while since I made any, but you are inspiring me! I really like the choices of paper colors here, too.

Hey! I almost bought a block for cutting/printing last time as was at the art store. Valedictorians think alike I guess. But let's face it, mine wouldn't have daisies, more like old creepy men, kids and monsters or vampires.
