Valerianna said...

OK, at risk of sounding... um... like myself in college -
Totally man!

Velma Bolyard said...

valerie, groovy, or updated, awesome and thanks

mjc said...

I can't wait to see all this in person!

Velma Bolyard said...

melissa, i can't wait to see YOU in person!

henrietta (aka ani aka zani) said...

magical and mystical - alchemical and a touch of it all

Velma Bolyard said...

henrietta, i am so not magical, really, just plain old. i do play with alchemy, but not with much methodology!

Fiona Dempster said...

They are warm and strong V - and in your hands will make a wonderful book (or other thing as the whim takes you).

Nancy said...

Way cool! I love the deepness of these and the hints of blue. Trippy :)

ArtPropelled said...

Beautiful books...Yes!My heart races when i see magic like this.

Lynn said...

These are amazing.

onesmallstitch said...

fantastic, they are art in themselves - don't need to be made into anything. awesome!

Barry said...

V-beautioful rust colours - they will make beautiful books. B

Velma Bolyard said...

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

neki desu said...

agree w. jean!

Margaret said...

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!

Velma Bolyard said...

neki, thanks, but i think they should become something
margaret, virtually no rust in these! really and truly.

Judy Martin said...

Beautiful -
I love that you are dyeing paper.

leFiligree said...

amazingly complex. i love how the circles add repetition to the mottled colors

Velma Bolyard said...

judy, it seems so appropriate somehow
joni, thanks for that observation

deemallon said...

I love the papers all spread out, and I imagine compiled into a binding they will also be amazing...

Velma Bolyard said...

dee, i am still trying to figure it out.

Mo Crow said...

Oh Wow! these are very beautiful Velma!

Velma Bolyard said...

thanks, mc!

ronnie said...

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....)

Velma Bolyard said...

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.
