Presumably so that we were working with shapes with which we are familiar this next exercise was to create a monogram. I've doodled with my initials first LR then LB since childhood and have never achieved anything that really pleased me. The limitations of my lino cutting skills did help me narrow down my choices and this is what I finished up with:
monogram - 2cm x 3cm
A little playing produced this pattern, it was supposed to be an exercise in layering and wild abandon, the layers are there but it looks like the abandon will have to come another day!
