Having Dora starting school this year we are both learning a lot about school etiquette. We stumbled upon another one, one where the mama could go creative. Dora came home with Christmas cards of her school friends, I would normally be: 'i am not going to join in and be pressured to do that' but this was fun. Dora drew a tree, I then copied it by eye to a rubber square and I used a lino cutter to create the stamp. I stuck it on a piece of wood I found in the skip a few weeks ago. Very easy, but not everybody has a lino cutter so I want to try to make it even simpler
I liked the bareness of the coat hanger tree without lights. Though the cosiness that the Christmas tree gives was a bit lacking, so Dora (I can't take credit for this idea) had the idea to put all the cards in the tree. Initially I connected them with paperclip but actually the tree lent itself very well to showcase the cards.
Today it was my treat morning again .. screenprinting! This weekend David and Dora took Lotta down to the shop. Lotta, also known as Lot Plot is not the fastest of walkers and her sense of direction .. well she is only two. So Dora and David were looking for her "were is the plot, we have lost the plot!"
So out of that, this screenprint/christmas present was born. I have had many comments of people wanting one themselves. So I might sell them. Let me know if you would like one. They have a lovely rough screen printing edge. I will print some more, a very limited edition print run though, as it is a stencil print.
I have also been waiting for 4 years for Dora to draw people in the most inventive way as all 4 year olds do. I have made some wrapping paper of Dora's people.
