week 3 of 52 weeks of printmaking- river rocks

This week's experiment is another simple block print that makes me think of river rocks. Every time my family goes camping, we head to a lake or river nearby to skip stones. Some of my favorites are the ones that have striations like these lines.

It's basically just an oval with 3 lines cut through. Quick and easy. I based it off of an old sketch.

I decided to make something other than a zippered pouch this week. This drawstring pouch is from a tutorial by Svetlana at S.O.T.A.K. Handmade and is one of my favorites. The lining is from Leah Duncan's new Gramercy line.

Life is busy! But I love taking even an hour each week to try something new to share here. 

As always, I'm sending this bag to one of you this week! Just leave a comment and I'll choose a winner at random on Thursday morning. Good luck!
