hand made paper, shifu, artists' books, north country living, and some words
will make amazing books.x te
trace, hoping so-
OK, at risk of sounding... um... like myself in college - Totally man!
valerie, groovy, or updated, awesome and thanks
I can't wait to see all this in person!
melissa, i can't wait to see YOU in person!
magical and mystical - alchemical and a touch of it all
henrietta, i am so not magical, really, just plain old. i do play with alchemy, but not with much methodology!
They are warm and strong V - and in your hands will make a wonderful book (or other thing as the whim takes you).
Way cool! I love the deepness of these and the hints of blue. Trippy :)
Beautiful books...Yes!My heart races when i see magic like this.
These are amazing.
fantastic, they are art in themselves - don't need to be made into anything. awesome!
V-beautioful rust colours - they will make beautiful books. B
fiona, i'm considering a drum leaf binding...but who knows once they all are place together...and then maybe narrative will occur! nancy, it's funny how many of the colors are picked up quite incorrectly, the little canon has its limitations (as does the photographer)robyn, i am so excited, too, glad to hear you share it.lynn, thank you!jean, thanks, but i think they must! barry, the rust tones are rich, but the camera just won't pick up the subtle greens and violets
agree w. jean!
Love, love, love that intense 'rustification'! I've rusted fabric, but that much would erode it completely. Still, those photos have me itching to stitch on that material!
neki, thanks, but i think they should become somethingmargaret, virtually no rust in these! really and truly.
Beautiful -I love that you are dyeing paper.
amazingly complex. i love how the circles add repetition to the mottled colors
judy, it seems so appropriate somehowjoni, thanks for that observation
I love the papers all spread out, and I imagine compiled into a binding they will also be amazing...
dee, i am still trying to figure it out.
Oh Wow! these are very beautiful Velma!
yumbo scrumbo (and a little sigh - its virtually impossible to get arches text wove here in oz - not that the magic is in the specific paper - just that this paper is such a useful little bugger for all sorts of things....)
ronnie, i love yumbo scrumbo!. they've changed the name to something like villein (no time to look it up now) but i suspect you know that. surprised it's not available in oz.
be in touch!
