Linoblock Printing Workshop

Standard

I recently attended a workshop at Wise Daughters. It was my first experience with Linoblock carving, and my second experience with Christine Pensa. As expected, it was a great afternoon, and I had a great time with the carving & stamping! Though I LOVED screen printing, it is material heavy and I probably won’t get into it until I have my own place. Linoblock printing is a little more low maintenance, and I’m already brainstorming ideas! You should all check out the Wise Daughters workshops! I made a few simple patterns. Once I use my prints in some final artwork, I will post it all up! I actually scheduled this post, because I am currently on vacation! When I’m back stay tuned, I’m looking forward to a very creative summer.

Geometric Gold Card

Standard

2013-03-24 22.28.34

I used my embossing stamps, silver embossing powder, acrylic paint & little crystals I got from Etsy to make this 5×7 card. Ever since I got my Martha Stewart score board, I find that my cards look much more professional :) It’s hard to see the 3D effect of the stamps. I tried to take a picture under light so you can see the full effect. The geometric pattern reminds me of those wooden doors in India.

The Christmas CD

Standard

For the Secret Santa Present mentioned in my earlier post, I had also burned two Christmas CD’s! One of them was a Michael Buble Christmas Mix, and the other was a mixed CD including Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber. I found these Mini CD’s at Future Shop, and I decorated the case using embossing powder/stamps, ink, acrylic paint, and an edge cutter by Martha Stewart. I tied both the CD’s together with Ribbon. I was quite happy with how it turned out :)

Peacock Paisley Stamp Cards

Standard

Using a paisley stamp acrylic paints and card stock, in a vivid peacock coloured palette, I created these 5 new cards.

If you are thinking of ordering cards for Diwali, look no further! These cards are only $3.00 each and can be made in the colours of your choice! I do require 7 days notice, so email me at srisarts @ gmail .com if you’re interested :)

Paisley Peach Cards

Standard

These two cards were made with acrylic paints, card stock, gold pen, 3D foam tape, and a paisley rubber stamp.

This past week, I came down with a terrible cold and fever! On Thursday afternoon, after spending two full days on the couch I finally got the energy to have a short creative session. It was  not only relaxing, but keeping away from the laptop and TV was great for my headache. Also, I learnt that spending two days on a couch staring at a wall with only a box of tissues for company is great to get the creative juices flowing. Stay tuned for a few more cards I made to replenish my completely depleted ‘card stock’ (pun intended, and if you didn’t get the pun, then it’s probably because it wasn’t very funny :P).
