test run

A test run of the succulent design block printed on a natural linen/cotton blend. Pics are in B&W but I did use black ink. I still have to work on removing some of those textural bits that pop up with lino printing although I kind of like what it adds here. When I see a whole lot of the succulent images together in black like this it reminds of how the Australian bush can look after a fire. Have to go rest now as still not feeling super great and it's very hot today. No fires though as far as I know.

  1. Nice print. What do you plan to do with it? Make something or sell it?

  2. beautiful kylie. just beautiful.

    i love the extra little surprises that lino prints leave behind and I think you could do with even more of them as they only add to your divine organic shapes. This would have taken you AGES to do. Are you placing the prints in a structured pattern or just haphazardly, it's a bit hard to tell from the photo.

  3. Thanks!

    Jason - not sure yet. Probably make something.

    FTD - I placed the block in a semi-structured way across the fabric to try to get an even spread of the motif. And yes, you're right, it did take me a while but was fun.
