Lino print hare and free Christmas giveaway

Hi and welcome to my blog, if this is the first time you’ve come across squarebird :-). Hello to all newcomers and old friends in the bloggesphere.

Today marked the day when work put up the Christmas tree and so I decided to run a Christmas free giveaway! I’m also promoting this on my
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/squarebird.co.uk and my printing blog at http://www.theelevatorpress.wordpress.com

First let me show you the actual lino cut I sketched out and cut this evening, then I’ll show it to you inked up for the first time. Finally, I’ll show you the limited edition lino-gelli print you have the chance of winning for yourself or a friend.

I chose to do a hare simply because I like nature and the hare is almost an iconic feature in the UK.

Once inked up with black, I found that I liked how the brown from the lino showed through against the acrylic paint.

Finally, I began to play around with a Gelliprinted background and then printed the hare over the top.

To win, all you have to do is comment after this blog post (or on my facebook page using the above link and commenting under the hare post) whether you would like to win it for yourself or if it will be a gift for someone. Entries will be accepted up until midnight Friday 12th December -all time zones and I will announce the winner (chosen at random) on Saturday.

Good luck everyone and thanks for stopping by 🙂
