The girls and I made these linoleum prints for the grandmothers. My favorite thing about making prints is that you can make multiples, so we made some for teacher cards, some for us, and some for both grandmothers. And all you need is a simple drawing to make a nice print. We basically used the same process that we did here, but this time I used their existing artwork and I have now invested in a baren, so no more foot pressing. I used easy-cut linoleum so I was able to easily trace their drawings from the paper onto the linoleum.
I think it’s particularly effective with younger children’s artwork to make multiple prints in varying colors as I did here with the sunshines. We’re late with these, but the grandmothers will get them next weekend. Happy Mother’s Day!
