Zig Zag, a WordPress weekly photo challenge

August 1, 2014

Timely, because I was just cutting a new lino, so hello WordPress weekly photo challenge.

I’m trying to figure out how to cross lines and still represent the image. It’s a bit tougher than I thought, but, other people can manage, so how hard can it be anyway?

Except that nothing is ever as straight forward as all that.

Here is a little stamp of weeds plus a butterfly, (on a 1912 dictionary page with the word straight), on top of a new, and more elaborate lino of oak leaves.

Now back to my zigging and a zagging around with my blades. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Nice handicraft. It looks good with print on the book.

      Thank you so much. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love using old paper rather than pristine, new papers. No character in those.

    I like it, Veronica. Our younger daughter’s into print making, so I enjoying seeing prints. I like your use of paper for the background.

      Thank you so much Kathryn. I’ve been really slowing down on the whole blog challenge thing. The photo ones are practically the only ones I can manage these days. I should try to do more. ๐Ÿ˜€

    So pretty! Lovely details in your design. I haven’t tried hand carving stamps yet, but I agree on using old pages from worn out books – they add so much texture and character ๐Ÿ™‚

    If Stradivarius used blades. That’s the first word I saw on your page. Great zig zagging.
