A Quiet Time of the Year

The most quiet time of the year has finally arrived…

I wish you all a peaceful time and a good start into the new year!

Small is Beautiful

Having bought a macro lens for my camera, I wanted to try it out as soon as possible.

This winter holiday we’re not going anywhere so we have just been walking around taking pictures of the beautiful nature surrounding as here in Austria.

Nature’s beauty can be seen in every little detail…

 

DIY Idea: Printed Gift Tags and Packaging

You can never start early enough to prepare nice packaging material for Christmas.

For these gift tags I carved a Christmas tree out of an eraser. Using a white eraser as a printing block has got several advantages.

The material is pretty soft und you can easily draw your motif on it with a pencil before you cut it out.

And once you have made your set of stamps, you can print with them again and again.

For Christmas I like to use golden or silver linocut printing colour.

Druckworkshop am Wochenende

Dieses Wochenende fand unser Druckworkshop bei Gudrun statt (werkstattstickler.at).
Wir waren sehr fleißig und haben einige nette Weihnachtskarten gedruckt.
Diesen Samstag werden wir übrigens nochmals einen Workshop anbieten, wieder um 15:00.

Wer also Zeit und Lust hat ist herzlich willkommen!

Christmas Market

The previous weekend a friend of mine had a stall at a local Christmas market.

She is a textile designer and makes these nice bags.

We also sold my printed Christmas cards there.

If you want to print your own cards, we will organise a printing workshop this Saturday (see article below).

Weihnachtskarten-Druckworkshop

Wer noch eine nette Weihnachtskarte braucht oder noch keine Verpackung für sein Geschenk hat, kann nächsten Samstag (13.12.2014) bei unserem Druckworkshop mitmachen!

Wir treffen uns um 15:00  (genaue Anfahrt unter werkstattstickler.at).

Unkostenbeitrag wäre 25,-

Christmas Crafts

I’ve been working on some nice Christmas cards and packaging recently.

I got very simple brown packages and tags and printed on them. I also used pages of old books which I painted over with gold and silver linocut colour. Finally I decorated some of the tags with Christmas washi tape.

They look pretty nice, don’t they?

Kreativworkshop!

Es ist zwar noch etwas früh dafür, aber wir werden diesen Freitag Weihnachtskarten gestalten, mit Linoldruck und anderen Drucktechniken.

Wer Lust und Zeit hat ist herzlich willkommen!

Wo und wann? Am 07.11.14 um 18 Uhr bei Gudrun Stickler (Adresse siehe werkstattstickler.at)
