BLOGTOBERFEST - Day 25 - Been and Gone

The crafty girls have been and gone. My we had a lovely day.


My first attempts at lino printing were a little disappointing. I couldn't quite get in the swing of drawing today which was a major barrier to designing a print. So after faffing about for a while and a very sad attempt at a practice print I gave up. I'll have another go some time and maybe I'll have something to show for myself then.

There was lots of eating and chatting, as well as faffing about.


I did do some lovely collages for this week's giveaway. They're not quite finished. If you pop back tomorrow you'll be able to see what I've made and put yourself in the draw.

Your linocuts look great - I especially like the flowers and leaves one. Your prints will be so lovely! Sounds like a great afternoon.

sounds like you had a fab day with all those crafty folk. It does take a bit of practice to get the lino print going well but once you're there, there will be no stopping you!
