Another page for a travelling art book

Here's a page for Lisa's book - the last in her travelling book before it flies back to her! Knowing that Lisa is a nature lover I decided on a wild flower/plants theme and made this page with a lino cut printed onto some lovely delicate, lacy/spiderweb-like paper which I applied to coloured Japanese papers. I have to say I struggled a bit with the cutting of this design - lots of curves and zigzags here - and slipped with the tool to decapitate a poor little snail in the process :( Hence the addition of an origami butterfly to fill the gap left by my carelessness! Hope you like the print Lisa!

    Poor escargot :(
    I do love the blue butterfly with the greens and browns though!


  3. I can just imagine you trying to get all of those curves and zigs cut into the surface. I am so thrilled with the end result. I don't see one mistake here. It is beautiful.!!! I can't wait to get it into my hands so my eyes can fully absorb the print. Thank you.
