Beginning the New Year with some new ideas

   The first day of the year should be celebrated with something new and fun, so here's my take on that idea. 
  I have resolved to make more art this year. And have several ideas rolling around in my head.  Number one is to find a way to make several designs in a repeated fashion, so that I could create cards easily.  So that is how this hopeful little bird with a heart shaped message to deliver for the new year came about.

Carving the linoleum was a challenge, because the linoleum is a bit hard. And  I hope it does not look too primitive.   I used some acrylic gouche paint for my print and made several postcards for a birthday card swap  I am in on Milliande.

Another new thing I learned is how to upload pictures from my phone and post them on my laptop.  So although I am without my regular computer and scanner,  I will be able to get back to blogging.
Yay! for bright New year! I am on my way to some new creative explorations.
Happy New Year everyone!
