Devon Allotment Lino Print

So, I've been thinking about this lino print design for a while, and thought it was high time to get it out on paper. The idea was really to immortalise an image of my sister and her husband's cottage garden in Ashprington, Devon. They have a very cheeky cat called Toby, who has made an appearance and here is the story and process of the design...


 Et voila, the finished print! Soon for sale on my Etsy Shop page!
