Day 5 of the Crafted Christmas Advent is a Forest at Night lino print.
I decided to print this forest image differently to the way I normally design my lino prints. Rather than creating a separate plate for each colour, I made six small lino cuts using softcut to make a spiral moon and five trees using a different texture or pattern for each tree.
After I had printed the moon, I used the other five to create a layered image of a forest on a moonlit night, overlapping the stamps as I went. I used four colours;
White for the moon,
Turquoise for the background,
Green for the middleground, and a deep green for the foreground.
I am quite pleased with the effect and may try to use the lino cuts to create a limited edition print in the new year.
Here is the full image.
I hope you are enjoying the Crafted Christmas Advent, there will be another lino cut featured tomorrow and more patterns next week.
Love this and thank you for the details of how you created it!five
