I've had the lino block tools and a piece of lino block for years!! I got mine from Fred Aldous which is based in Manchester, but they used to have a little shop in Chorley, Lancs. They have a fantastic range of products but some products you may be able to get cheaper elsewhere. I did cut something a long time ago but have since discarded it. What got me thinking about making a print block was seeing the beautiful Indian Print Blocks from Colouricious at the NEC. I've used mine in two ways. The green design was made by rubbing a Markal Paintstik over the top of the block, these are oil paints in a stick. The gold design I did by painting gold fabric paint over the block, putting the fabric over the top then rolling over with a brayer. I've made a negative design though it does look here as though the design is raised it isn't - taken from 'Pattern Motifs: A Sourcebook', by Graham Leslie McCallum.
Now for my completed 365 Journal March pages - I wet the back of the righthand page too much while preparing April's pages which made the ink run on my little birds, but think I've managed to rescue it reasonably well. I've used a mix of Brusho and Koh-i-Noor waterbased dye for April. I do like using both these products but you have to be very careful 'cos they do bleed extremely easily. I've also used my new white matte Craftynotions spray with a couple of stencils. For more info about the 365 Journal pop over to Kate's :-)
