Well, it really is far too early to be posting as I have only cut my first plate BUT its my first ever multi-coloured print and I am so excited I just want to share!!!
My inspiration is the 1920s figurines that were often made as statues or lamp stands. I'm therefore going to try and make my print look bronze-y - and I am going to print from light to dark.
This is my first attempt of putting the paper on the plate rather than stamping the lino on the paper - all the printing on fabric instructions I found did it the other way. I am also reading all the registration tutorials avidly!
So here is my original sketch and my first proof of my first plate - this one will be the lightest colour (I knowthis is a poor quality print, but I just wanted to see what still needed cutting - a lot as it turns out!). I am not sure yet if I will do the palm leaves she is holding in greens or not, but if I do I will probably use the same plates and ink that area separately. Also not sure on background - I think I will see what she looks like first.
