Proof print...


Ok - as promised - this is the first two proof prints of the lino cut. I'm pretty pleased with them - but definitely not the paper. This is just some cut watercolor paper I had lying around. The final prints/cards will be on nice smooth Strathmore printmaking paper. Hopefully I'll get them started tonight. Be kind, please. Remember it's been years since I have done this...

I love your blog!!! It makes me want to make prints. I also want to make felt dolls and everything else I see on Etsy :) It is just so much fun to see all of this great stuff! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hey, I like the prints AND I like the color. I just bought my husband a teal button up long sleeve for work with a multi-gray designed tie. Funny thing, now that he has to wear ties and buttonups every day, he likes them. He can't have the new shirt and tie til Valentine's Day though. LOL. We are kindred spirits as my hubby also knows what he is getting, but is not getting it early. :)

:-D As I said After I killed myself preparing beef f wellington ( I was working 60 - 70 hr weeks and driving 45 mins each way, and we were catering on the weekends!!!) no ring. Fixed manwich the next week and he proposes. Needless to say that was the last beef wellington I cooked!

Nice start to the print, but yes, you'll be much happier with something other than watercolour paper for your support! Looking forward to see it on a better option!!
