I keep all the woodblock prints that don’t quite work and use them to make collages. Here is one of a bluebird. I have made a lino-cut based on this and printed it onto cardboard. I am thinking of making sets of three in different colours to hang on the wall.



I have also been experimenting with fabric printing ink. Not easy! The ink is really runny and slippery and nothing like ordinary block printing ink. It takes quite a lot of practice and many mistakes. Anyway I am quite pleased with these woodblock prints onto cloth. I plan to print another colour onto the flower and perhaps the cat, although I quite like him just like this!
