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.
You can turn an ordinary spring flower into a nice present using some printed paper…
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!
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?
An idea how to give your Valentine’s present to your loved one – just print some red hearts on a simple white paper bag…
This year I preferred a blue and white-themed Christmas gift wrapping. But of course some gold should not be missing as well…
I absolutely love these sketchbooks. This turquoise one is especially nice. It will be a present for a friend’s 30th birthday.
