Lino block prints

For the last month I've been taking an introductory printmaking course, where we learn an overview of several printing techniques. The first technique we learned was relief, using lino block.

This method is rather easy to grasp and I really enjoy the process. I'll be debuting some of these cards at my next craft show (which is quickly approaching!). Stay tuned to see my lithography prints.

I bought a button machine! The machine is a Tecre 100, for making 1" buttons, magnets, keychains... the possibilities are endless! These are some magnets I made - I really like the robots.

I am pleased to announce that I will be a vendor at the Spring Handmade Market, Saturday May 16, at the Gladstone Hotel Ballroom, 1214 Queen Street West (at Dufferin). This show features Etsy sellers from the Toronto area. It's my first show of 2009, and my first in the downtown area - I'm very excited!
