New Lino Cut for Repeat Pattern

I have been a little more ambitious with this block as I wanted it to be in keeping with the drawings I’ve been doing. This is my design and as you can see I’ve traced it through with carbon paper.New block 1 I used a tiny spray of spray mount to keep everything in place while I was tracing and what I discovered was, the spray mount on the lino acted as a fixative for the carbon tracing and so didn’t rub off while cutting the block!New block 2 New block 3 A little practice in technique is needed for the alignment of the block..New block 4…but a few pencil lines drawn on the side works wonders!5New block 4 As my regular viewers know, I’m a keen recycler and so the base for this print is a vintage sheet. šŸ™‚New block 5
