New Block Print...

...this one I'm really excited about because I'm finally taking the leap and carving into linoleum. Up until now, I have been creating my block prints by carving into a soft rubber block. Such a pleasure to carve into because it's so soft. However, I'm finding the blocks aren't as sturdy as I would like. I found that out the hard way when one of my rubber blocks split in half...major bummer! So I thought that was a sign to move on. ;)

So although carving into linoleum is much harder and takes much longer for me, I'm finding it quite satisfying and enjoyable! Here's my first attempt which I will be printing on napkins, tea towels, and journals. Be on the lookout! :)
