decorate a large flowerpot, aged with a craquelure varnish.

Oriental triangle tag - This tag uses the chinese symbol for longevity and cadbury's wicked chocolate wrappers. (You have to eat chocolate in the name
of art!) The background is created using a pigment inkpad in shades of
brown over the top of a print of the lino pillar (which was printed using the back of a spoon to rub the paper onto the lino). Stamp credits: OM studio
Kimono tag - This yellow tag was stamped with geometric patterns prior to layering two different kimonos which had been stamped onto japanese
patterned paper and cut out. Stamp credits: kimonos,
D'Analen; pattern-Hero Arts
Lino Pillar - This is a traditional lino cut, printed using a press,
then scanned and digitally "cleaned up".

glued onto sugar paper
Glenda Waterworth lives in the Teesdale area of County Durham, and has her own art studio "Graphicus" where she produces hand made greetings
cards and a range of decorative giftware to commission.
"I have a passion for colour and experience of a wide range of crafts.
I enjoy silk painting, glass painting, mosaic, gilding, paper making,
embroidery, collage, batik, rubber stamping and I have a keen interest
in interior design which has led me to experiment with paint effects, faux finishes and stencilling.
I enjoy all aspects of printmaking, such as lino, woodcuts, monograph
and drypoint etching. It is my ambition to save up enough to buy myself a printing press and learn traditional metal engraving techniques.
I'm currently working on a website and a series of images to do with
voyages, while trying to find the time to restore our Edwardian house
that has been sadly neglected."
