Lino Cutting

I am still playing with feathers. I wanted to create a stamp of one of my feather designs, so I broke out my lino cutting tools. Here you see the stamp as I began the cutting process. The lino block I am using is 4 x 6 inches in size.
The finished stamp with textile paint applied. Instead of "stamping" onto the fabric, I laid the fabric (a sheer) on top of the wet stamp and rolled a brayer over it.With just a little more refinement to the cutting, I think this is going to work quite wellHope you are not tiring of feathers, because I have many more to show over the next little while.

I have been wanting to do Lino... and the supplies are readily available here... like just down the street. I love the idea of using feathers, too. I may have to try the whole process with feathers. Thanks for the idea.

I Love feathering also, but I have to tell you I don't recall anything about Lino cutting and I am not sure what that is.

I love your feathers. What a cool thing to do. I have some EZ Cut stuff somewhere -- you're making me want to get it out and play!

Robbie said...

Wow..your stamp turned out great! It's easier to lay fabric ontop of the stamp. I never 'stamp' properly! HA lovely piece!! and no, I don't get tired of your feathers!

This is so cool, Jill. I love the way you've taken the feather design and made it your own with special flourishes. You continue to open up your mind and let the creativity pour out -- and you share it all with us, which is really special.

Gads! It's been a while since I've visited here! I am glad you test stuff before I buy it too. I think you've saved me a few pennies!

I don't get tired of feathers at all. I have had them on my mind a lot lately. (and NO this does NOT mean I am feather-brained!!!)

Neat, neat stuff to look at on your blog! I'll try to not be such a stranger!

I haven't tired of your feathers, they've inspired me to try them. So, today I did. My first attempt at feathers - and I must say, not bad for a first attempt! Keep the great inspirations coming.

Is there anything that you can not do? This is very cool........I never knew that a rubber stamp could be use this way.

Happy sewing, creating, stamping, doodling, dying, quilting and all the other wonderful talents you have too!

Your stamp is fabulous. The possibilities for it's use are endless. Happy stamping...

We made lino blocks for Christmas cards a couple of years in a row. It was a lot of work to cut the block, but very fun to stamp them. I love how you are working with the feather image in different ways. Can you put a group of photos of all your different feathers in one post?

Hope to see you back at the CPP again!
