How can I not love this video? Beautiful, epicly shot footage of the sea near Cornwall and a lovely tune by Will Samson. Plus it’s made by my boyfriend!
Started on a new linocut this week. It will eventually be a mountain landscape. Couldn’t resist these lil guys though. Doesn’t it look like a wave? Gotta love when a process to make one thing ends up making another.
Here’s my second stab at linocuts – my favorite ole sailboat on the sea.
I need to get better at my technique… I hope I am not spoiling the surprise, but someone requested something handmade for Christmas and they just may be getting a print…
A few weeks ago I went over to Atlantis art supply and picked up a few art supplies. Among them were some tools to make linocuts.
I’ve been interested in print making for a little while and wanted to try it out. I made this drawing of a wave and decided to give it a go.
When you make a linocut, you gouge out the places where you don’t want ink. Although my original drawing shows the waves dark, I thought I would try to just cut out my lines. Afterall, when a wave breaks, it’s quite foamy and white.
It was definitely trickier than I had imagined! I think there’s a certain style of image that it lend itself to more readily. Here’s the second one I’ve drawn up to try…
Bought some supplies to print a few linocuts the other day, so I’ve begun sketching a few possibilities to print. Here’s a wave.
If you like this bag, you can buy it ready made in my online shop, Make Or Break Shop.
I’m working on a tutorial for how to draw a beautiful ocean scene on to a tote bag. Stay tuned!
But if you just have to have this one, go get it in my shop, MakeOrBreakShop!
