NaBloPoMo 2013: Day 5. Printing autumn.


It has been many years since I last picked up my lino-cutting tools, felt the smooth, as-yet uncut surface or smelled the linseed-oil tang of proper lino.  But I have been craving crafty pursuits recently and have been wanting to get back to doing it again.  Though I don’t have the space to craft as much as I used to (boo), I really enjoyed the process of getting thall of my tools out and having a play.  I put a little bit of music on my laptop and got down to business, inspired by the photos and sights of our walk last Sunday.

It’s still pretty rough around the edges, and quite time-consuming (I did have to choose a fiddly design!) but very cathartic and enjoyable nonetheless.  Can you see the snail climbing the stalk?
