A Cut Above (Pam Carriker)

(Still posting about Art Unraveled in August)
I didn't come to the class completely prepared. We were supposed to come with a photocopy of a piece of our own art that we wanted to cut (from lino). I deliberated for months over this... and finally showed up with nothing :) Pam was prepared for this :) So I cut an image of HER art. The amusing thing was that I won one of her doorprizes... and it was a rubber stamp of the exact image that I was cutting. Someone offered to trade my stamp for the one that thy has won... but I chose to keep it... I like to have multiple sizes of the same stamp.

I haven't used regular (hard) linoleum for a long time -- I got blisters! But I was quite happy with my results.

(the bottom photo is Pam's Stamp --- called Beatrice)

Would I take a class from Pam again? Definitely!
Will I cut lino again? I already have :)

Well.... at the same time you were mentoring me.
