Vase of Flowers - Decal print on a wooden block

Brave move yesterday as I approached a shop to see if they would like to take on my wares...we'll see what happens and if they like.

Meanwhile I've listed my Vase of Flowers decal print in my Folksy shop a few days ago...

There's more of these to com, once again I'm getting a little obsessive!

Berries and Birds - Decal print on a wooden block

I've recently added Berries and Birds as a decal printed wooden block to my Folksy Shop.   It features my design of two birds playing amongst blue and purple swirls in a forest.

A lovely tactile object and really pleased with the results and becoming quite obsessed with making them! Originally a hand pulled screen print A3 in size.

My artwork is mounted onto a block of square spruce wood letting the natural variants of the wood appear through my design  - making each block unique!

 Based on my original screen print I have reproduced the artwork onto decal paper and then carefully placed this onto a hand sanded wooden block

For extra protection the artwork has a coat of varnish - The sides remain natural.  Each block has a pre-drilled hole in the back (diameter 5mm) ready to hang off a nail on your wall... 

Block dimensions: W 93mm, H 93mm, D 18mm

Inspired by my garden, the surrounding parks where I live and of course the birds.

Here it is in the box I made for it!
