Title: Two Rivers, Crafts
For our Art class we were instructed to create an abstract design that we could eventually transfer to a soft bloc to cut for printing. For the idea for this project, I used the idea of the Chippewa River merging with the Minnesota River, which occurs in our town. After the sketch was done, I realized I had used shading, so I was thrown for a loop. I used different sized linoleum block cutting tools to get the faded shading look. From there, I rolled black ink onto the block and created this 9x9 design by repeated printings.
