Poem Illustration.

 This is the first test print of the poem illustration using all the various components, however I'm not at all happy with a lot of it. First the Celtic Cross needs to be re- carved, it's too big and the decoration is not right. Don't worry, the angel is supposed not to have hands or arms!
  This I think will be better. All these test prints are done with stamp pad ink and the blacks are therefore very blotchy and pale. The final version will be printed with proper printing ink, then the worry will be that the fine detailed lines will be lost if the ink is applied too heavily!

Yes, definitely better. Now I need to carve some more foliage, no more flowers needed, but just some leaves. Nearly there.
