Ok so Ive been an absent blogger for a week or so! sorry! I have been very busy and also a bit lost...the blues turned a bit black for a few days but Ive managed to shake off that feeling for now!
Ive been playing with lino with some success but mainly fustration! trying to much at once as usual! Ive attempted 3 and 4 color prints wanting that slightly off registration look and playing with more graphical designs! my enemy has been color agian!!! I have been working with tiny old tubes of ink trying to stretch it to far....money alway the issue I cant afford to buy new inks and want to achieve to much from the little I have!!!
Apart from struggling with the colors I cant seem to print them clean! and I dont like that! Im working with out a press just using a barren to rub the backs...works much better when you have enough ink to go around!!!
Ive come to a stand still with it due to frustration! Im hoping to raise some money soon so I can buy inks and better paper and really have a proper go ! Im desperate to use screen printing and work on fabric but again cash will not allow at the present!!! for now I think ill work on some designs and have a load of ideas and motifs ready to go for when I can!!!
(Still trying to decide about a new shop/venture will post more on this very soon- I need advise...)
also a new interview in the pipe line so watch this space xxx
