Happy Birthday

It may not be your birthday today, but it will be soon for one of you friends or family members! I’ve made a set of 4 silly birthday cards that are now available in my Etsy shop that might help you out.

Xmas Cards

Thursday, November 24th, 2011
































My xmas card printing went much more smoothly today when I switched from a water-based ink to an oil-based ink. I think it’s because the grey linoleum doesn’t like the water-based ink very much. The water-based ink was printing quite splotchy and I couldn’t fix it.

I then did a non-toxic cleanup using a 50/50 mix of vegetable oil and white vinegar (a great tip from friends at St. Michael’s). Works really well.

The next step is to add some spot colours using watercolours, I think. They’ll be up in my Etsy shop over the weekend.

Holiday Cards

Monday, November 12th, 2012


I’ve put some holiday cards back up in my Etsy shop this week, head on over for a look-see.

We’ve got a set of wintry animals, and another set of a very tipsy owl. The owl cards are Gocco prints and the others are linocuts with watercolour spots. Both sets come with snowflake-printed envelopes.

I’m also accepting commissions for small paintings and drawings so if you’re interested please send me an e-mail at jnbarrett20 @ hotmail . com!
