A friend of mine is a textile designer and I love to print.
So it was just a matter of time to start printing on fabric. This is going to be our first collaborative piece of work, a beach mat.
We will also take part in this craft fair in April which I´m really looking forward to.
Easter is coming up and so is a small DIY Easter market at a friend’s house.
I like these Easter-themed gift tags and textile prints.
These small drawings were done with black drawing ink and watercolours on gift tags:
I’ve been thinking about opening my own online shop for quite some time.
Well, now I finally opened it! I want to offer some of my favourite linocut and woodcut prints there so if you’re interested, please have a look:
I printed some of my woodcuts on small postcards.
I want to set up an online shop at Dawanda, which is a German online platform for DIY products, where I am planning to sell some of my smaller prints as well as these cards.
But it still needs a whole lot of preparation to set up the shop…
I used some leftovers from an old linoleum plate to cut out this pencil motif.
Then I printed the pencil in different colours and used them to redecorate my blog (look at the sidebar).
Of course you could also print some nice sticky notes with it…
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.
Here are some pictures of yesterday’s printing workshop.
We printed some colourful spring motifs using linocut plates and used screenprinting to print on fabric.
Needless to say we had a lot fun…
