Cutting Up the Mix Tape

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Recent events have resulted in it becoming particularly difficult for me to listen to certain songs without turning into a blubbering, sobbing, wimpy-girl mess. So what better way to deal with this than to pick up a very sharp knife and cut things.

Now if I manage to sell this on my Etsy store I will have not only cured my emotional attachment to certain chansons but also made some moolah! Now THAT’S thinking.

I finished my lino cut today and then played around with paint. I really wasn’t sure how much paint to use and the best way to apply it, so it took a bit of experimentation before things started happening. It still isn’t perfect but I now get the general rules for successful paint application, and look!

I am very pleased with the results. I want to experiment with adding some colours and layers. I am looking forward to see what eventuates!
