This print was inspired by wanted to expand on some old existing skills by making a layered print.
I've been wanting to try linoleum cutting (linocut) and printing again, since I first learned how in high school. That was a long time ago, but thankfully not so long that I forgot. I chose to do a layered print so I could have a colored floral background for the white sugar skull. I did a few test prints before settling on a printing style and placement I liked. After I perfect the printing, I will make more and have them available for sale in my Etsy shop. Each one will be slightly different, due to hand printing these, so you will have a one of a kind piece of art.
Every other Thursday in the 5.0 year, I will post my own Dia de la Abby creations Every Thursday in the 4.0 year, I posted my Dia de la Abby creations and occasionally tutorials with instructions on how I made my pieces. Hopefully you feel inspired by my posts just as I was by Noah's Skull-A-Day 1.0 daily project. Need more of me than just a weekly dose, follow me on Facebook, Google+ and/or Twitter..
