Embroidered Lion Print
Not completely finished yet, but I had to photograph it for senior exit review so I thought I'd post it. I just have to embroider one or two more flowers!
And in case you were wondering how this was made, I'm really proud of how I did it, because to my knowledge nobody has ever done it before!! I sewed embroidery fabric onto museum board (with the help of Veronica Bayagich. Then after a few test prints, I inked up my lino carving and rolled it through the letterpress, and voila! Then I embroidered it with standard embroidery floss, which was pretty tough because getting the needle to go through museum board takes some extra effort.
