Easter is on the way mmmm chocolate eggs 🙂 As I have been dabbling in a bit of lino cut printmaking recently I thought I would give Jessy the Juggling Chicken the print treatment with an Easter twist.
When I did the original pen and ink sketch for her design I was having a particular busy time and so juggling whilst on a tightrope seemed quite appropriate and could easily be a metaphor for my cookings skills – juggling ingredients and hope for the best!
So I transferred the image to the lino and got cutting, a lovely relaxing thing to do!
…and the finished lino
I then started playing with the inks and made some stamps for the Easter eggs and did several proofs playing with different paper stocks and a wooden spoon as I don’t have a press… a fun start, I’ll definitely have another play at printmaking with the Jessy Chicken linocut again sometime.
So Spring is definitely nearly here, I just love the daffodils in my Buttercup jug and in the garden around the apple trees. Mother’s Day means we are there! Bella the Balancing Goose is ready for Mother’s Day with this new addition to my greeting cards specially for Mum. Also all of Allegoric’s goodies are posted out free of charge too!

Valentines Day on its way!
The winter is definitely on its way out when Valentines Day rolls around. The Love Bunnies are ready and waiting to share the love. A design I originally designed for my other half has taken on a life of its own. So they are now on a set of 2 coasters, perfect to share the love, a card and print. Bring on the love!
