Christmas Flaunting!

Happy Christmas to all my blog readers!  I have no idea who a lot of you are, but thank you so much for looking.  You visits and comments give me inspiration to keep "doing"!

All the snow storms in Europe and America gave me the idea for this little lino cut!  Winter trees! Icy Water!

It is very small - 6" x6".

I did a second lift of Koi!  This is just a WIP - quilted but not painted yet and still needs a binding!  I think he looks quite handsome in red!

Have a Wonderful and happy day tomorrow!

This is my Friday flaunt for the nest 2 weeks!  In the caravan and gone on the 27th!  Be back on the second of Jan!  So Happy New Year too!

Just adore Winter Trees! Icy Water!

Now excuse the simpleness of these questions but
1. talking about your Winter Trees lino cut am I looking at the lino or am I looking at the 'printed' version of it.

2. with the Loi, I assume I am looking at the 'print'. How do you get different colours in different parts?
I always thought lino printing was like stamping. I take a rubber stamp apply ink all over it and then basically thump it down on some paper or fabric and viola I have an image.

3. How long does it take you to actually cut the lino say for the Koi or the trees?

4. How do you achieve the different layers, the hill, branches snow etc?

Your rendition of winter is spot on! It looks just like that in my neck of the woods. But I'd prefer to look at your fabric version, thank you.

Merry Christmas! Have a lovely caravan get-away.
