ten in ten prints

Howdy Folks! This past few weeks I joined Emily of Base Camp Printing Co. (See her 10 in ten on Instagram: @basecampprintingco) in an attempt to produce 10 prints in 10 days. It was a wild ride and made for some late nights, but I couldn’t be happier with the body of work that came from it! All prints are available in the shop! Should you find one or two that you fancy,  just click on the title and it link you to the Etsy shop!

Also, a big “THANK YOU!!!”, to all that purchased a “Jorja Fiddle” print. Thanks to you, we were able to raise and donate $200.00 dollars for EHE cancer research. For more info, visit http://fightehe.org. This organization is raising money for research into the type
of cancer that Jorja fought for so many years.

For you Instagram followers (@onthetrolley), be the first to answer these 3 questions and win a free #teninten print of your choice! (Not including the “Jorja Fiddle” Print as this is to raise money for EHE Cancer Research.)  Good Luck!!!

Question 1:   Where was Johnny Cash Born?

We started things off with the initial artwork…
Chicken_process_1

then transferred it to the stamp block and got to carving!

It was off to the races, 1st layer, carved and printed!

Decided to add another color… a touch of red…

With the red done, it was back to the original block,
carving the 3rd/final layer from the initial yellow block.

New Print!!! New Print!!! New Print!!! “It’s like an electric guitar going off in my heart!!!”

Ever enjoyed something for yourself that was truly awesome?

…watched a friend reach their goal, accomplished one of your own,
or watched your kiddo score his first goal in the ever intensified sport
that is little league soccer?

If you have… you know the feeling…

While names have been changed, what you’re about to read is a true story.

It was a beautiful spring day, birds were chirping, turtles were sleeping,
and little Spike Johnson had just taken the field. He was excited, he was
nervous, but above all, he was determined.

He had been to every practice, was wearing his lucky shark tooth necklace,
and had eaten a big bowl wheaties, He approached the game that day with
confidence and went forth with a fire in his belly to score his first goal.

With thunder in his foot and the speed of a puma he chased the “polyester
and/or cotton bonded (laminated)” ball and struck it with all the power that
his seven year old frame could muster……

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!

That’s right folks, all the hard work had paid off. Spike Johnson had scored
his first goal.

To this day, no one really remembers who won the game that beautiful spring day.
They do remember how spike felt though. When asked by reporters (Spikes Mom)
how it felt to have finally scored his first goal, Spike replied how only Spike could…

“IT WAS LIKE AN ELECTRIC GUITAR GOING OFF IN MY HEART!!!”

So, whatever your goal, whatever your accomplishment, we hope you will enjoy this
new print from onthetrolley. May it connect you to your past successes, remind you
to celebrate the awesome things in life, and inspire you to share those stories as you
keep reaching for the stars and scoring those GOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLSSS!!!
