I'm Back!

Hooray, we have Internet in our home! No more trips to the library or sneaky posts while at work. I've so much catching up to do because I've been making lots of things since I had so much more time due to not being able to work on the computer!

OK, I'll start today with the new bird prints I've been making.

I was very busy last week because I wanted to get some new gocco prints out for all the markets I'm doing in the run up to Christmas. You can find me as usual at Rose Street Artist's Market every Saturday and at the Abbotsford Convent Makers Market for the next few Sundays. Also I'm doing Northcote Twilight Market at Northcote Town Hall Thursday nights 6 till 10. This is a lovely little market and I just love the cycle up that great big hill every Thursday!


So, here are the new gocco prints, this is a New Holland Honeyeater. I often get asked if I have any prints of this bird and now I do!

And these two little birds are Australian Robins. I thought since robins are Christmassy back home in the UK, I'd try a few Australian ones. The top one is an Eastern Yellow Robin and the bottom one is a Flame Robin.
And of course, no prizes for this one, a Laughing Kookaburra. I heard one from our living room in our new house earlier this week. They sound fantastic!


To read more about how these gocco prints are made see my tutorial blog post on the subject.

Love the new prints! Especially the honeyeater.

And you may notice that I like Kookaburras too - considering the little image I use for my profile pic!

The new prints are stunning. What method did you use?

R, I have added a bit of extra info to this post with the information you are asking about. Hope it helps.

beautiful prints bridget
and a belated (public) THANKYOU for choosing me :) to win one of your beautiful brooches.
like you, i got sooooo much more work done when i didn't have a computer. it was really liberating.

also just peeped at the gocco tutorial - just brilliant. knew what they were, never knew the exact process, didn't realise you had to push the ink through like that. intriguing. i want one.

good luck with the rest of your markets. the finish line is in sight.
