I'm gocco-ing mad!

Today I tried out my gocco printer for the first time. I thought I'd go with an easter theme as it will be here before we know itThere was a bit of trial and error in the form of an unexposed bulb, which meant a wasted screen, but you can't expect things to be perfect first time. I used 2 screens for this one, although possibly could have done it on one screen (? still learning).
I've left the birds wings deliberately blank, so I can infill them with some of my scrap book papers.
What do you think? I'm pretty chuffed with my first attempt.

Today I also made a crown for the bunny from yesterday - She's called Elizabeth - a very regal name - to go with her not too regal looking pink crown

For Lucy Locket - here are a couple of pics of my printed fabric from my uni days. I didn't get around to chopping it up today - maybe tomorrow? although I am a wee bit obsessed with gocco right now
Finally after an anxious few days on my part since I posted it, Heleen has received her valentines swap gift from me. Phew!
He's a little pic of what i made for her
You can check out her blog here to see the finished/final piece. I'm really pleased that she loves it - after all valentines is all about the love!
