block printing.

Outside of screen printing class I’ve been experimenting with creating my own block prints.

I recently purchased a copy of Christine Schmidt’s Print Workshop which inspired me to make a few block prints of my own.

The first step was carving my own personal stamp – which ultimately resulted in scabbed knuckles…but it was worth it. I chose a feather pattern which I’m hoping to use as a logo for my soon to be etsy shop – where I’ll feature handmade textiles, prints, film photography and handmade ceramics…more on that later.

For now, here’s a preview of my potential store logo featured on card stock and product tabs.

Stay tuned for updates on when the etsy shop (guess my shop name and you get the first purchase free) goes live!
