First Time Lino Printing!

Today it was wonderful to join in the Printing For Enjoyment workshop, although most were focusing on Christmas prints I was experimenting in general and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The Timelapse video below outlined the process and I’ll include the individual images. I used a mix of backgrounds, tissue paper, procreate pens and gold leaf paint.…
