As my digital printer isn't working I've been looking at other ways to decorate fabric. My first try was cutting out a leaf, attaching it to an old block and printing. I just placed the leaf randomly and didn't really think to much about the spacing etc
Obviously the secret is the application of the paint to the lino, to much makes blobs and spreads, and to little limits the coverage.

The great thing is that you can print light on dark which I couldn't do with the digital printer. Not much compensation I must admit but at the moment I don't have much option!

Feathers again

I have never seen one of the feathers in my life and within two days have seen two, one on Gennine's Art Blog and the other on tinctory.

Apparently it is a jay feather, how beautiful!

Beetles and Bugs

Thanks to StickManJewelry for including me in her treasury. I love to see how other people interpret the same things in their designs.

I saved this pic a while ago and can't remember where I found it, so apologies to who ever it belongs to! I love buttons but must admit my collection is looking a bit sad at the moment. Most items you buy nowdays have those awful plastic buttons... what happened to all the beautiful wooden, tortoise shell and mother-of-pearl buttons?
