My first linocut

Living in Bedford means that Edward Bawden's illustrations are often on display as there is a large collection of his work at the Higgins. A lot of it are lino cuts, so I thought I'd give it a go with my fox character here.

Here is my lino. You carve the lino where you want there to be white space. I got a bit carried away and went through to the back! I patched it up, no problem!

I rolled on some black acrylic printing paint, pressed some paper on top and lifted it off and... It actually looks really cool! I'm so pleased with it!.

Here is the dining room now. Er, I think I got carried away. I started printing on everything! Now to tidy up before my boyfriend gets mad!
