I really ought to sit down and do some serious works, but I am so in love with my studio at the moment, and feeling so productive. Should I really stop and get to work? I don’t know. In any case, last weekend I finished another batch of prints and learned some more about dry-point, different substrates and paints. Maybe I’ll talk about that again in another post, I don’t know yet. Some of those prints are on my table here. I just loved how my working table looked like when I set out to work today. Not many words for now, but I’ll show you some more pictures.
Fallen cherry blossoms, gathered to add a second layer to my eco prints, made from fallen cherry leaves last autumn.
Upon opening the packages I thought they had grown mold while being steamed. But it just looked so ugly. Luckily I did not treat all my papers that way. The whole batch went into the bin. – Another one. Well, looks like I’ll have to get used to that.
Then spent the rest of the day finishing these 7 new bottles for my message in a bottle project. More about that will be visible on their own blog soon.
As you can see I used some of the feather prints. I don’t know what to do with most of them, though. Also two are still “fishy”, fish being the big theme for the last batch, and the one on the very left here contains just one large big scroll with one of my own stories written on it. I am tempted to make a small edition of the scrolls, with a cover added that is different from a sealed glass bottle.
