Blog, Creative Projects

Had this idea in my head the last few weeks kind of outside my usual bright and happy creations.

More like a heavy self doubt portrayed by the environment weighing down on a bright Pollyanna.. a feeling I always have when starting something new.. and omg, ugh!

Creative chaos all over my desk, and while it’s starting to look pretty it’s definitely not what I imagined.

…this is gonna take some time. *as I smear it all over in utter frustration*… ahhhh the mess…

Let’s see if this still works…

Seriously have to give a shoutout to this product by Speedball Art Products.

I bought this jar of block printing ink over 10 years ago, and the last 5 years it just sat in my closet.

Pulled it out to see if I could prep another workshop with it while doubting it would be anything other than a black brick, and yet to my surprise it worked like a charm!

Spread a little thicker than brand new, but still perfectly good 10 years later… lol… Consider me impressed :)…

Thanks Speedball!

I used to work with these a lot, and just recently picked them up again. Artisan books! Made with original hand-painted covers, and a stitch binding.

More styles coming soon!
