Awesome Friday..........

My  Awesome Friday took me to Julie's studio in Wivenhoe where she was holding her first print workshop.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but  i knew i was in safe hands with Julie as she is very dedicated and passionate person when it comes to her art work.

I went with Cherry and met Christine and Hillary (two of Julie's friends) there,

Julie was very patient and positive thoughout the workshop, She made me feel confident with every stage of the activity. I was really pleased with my finished work and would love to go on another one of her workshops and would certainly recommend her to other interested people

1st stage was to draw a simple drawing. As you can see mine is very very simple......

2nd stage  I drew around my shape using tracing paper.I then transferred the shape onto the lino by rubbing the paper with a soft pencil. 

3rd stage. I cut out the shape with a lino cutter and this is the result.

4th stage. I chose some red printing ink  and with a roller covered the shape with the ink. Now i was ready to print . This is my first attempt on some small envelopes..

5th stage... The final stage Printed on BEST paper. Pretty good don't you think for a first timer ?

I think Julie's print work shop was a great success. I JUST LOVED IT.......
Thanks Julie xxxxx

  9. Your Lino prints are great, it's very effective isn't it. I can remember doing some, but a good while a go. I think I remembered putting it on the top of t Rayburn to warm up and soften as the cutting can be a little tricky as I remember?

    You should be really pleased with you results.
