Only 2 More Sleeps!

Only 2 more sleeps until we leave Melbourne for St. Petersburg and later in the week board this magnificent vessel to spend a couple of weeks cruising the Baltic Sea. I wonder how often she'll be like this in full sail, possibly not often and no, we don't have to climb the rigging.

This is a drawing presented to me by a just 4 year old. It's not random scribble, but intentional small marks all over the page. I just love it and I don't really know why, but to me it just has something!

Printing Session.

 At last I have had a chance to carry out the next step in my current project. Using the full page feather gelatine plate prints that I made, I have stamped with the block that I cut some time ago and also with the thermofax screen that I burnt with my Gocco machine more recently.
    These are the only ones that I felt had potential, but the smaller dance'rs foot just wouldn't print.
 Drawing it in with a pen was an option, but I would rather that it printed in the same density as the rest of the print.
Wouldn't you know it, the one background that I really liked and wanted to use is no good, I didn't place the final print in the correct position!!!

Happy 4th Birthday!

 What a wonderfully colourful, but very easy birthday cake for a 4 year old who requested a rainbow cake.The cake itself was chocolate, just plain, with all the rainbow on the outside!
