I’ve done a bit of sketching for my book project, all of which needed to be printed on stained paper and then distressed.
A note about working with hand-stained paper: printers hate it.
This is a smattering of what escaped being eaten by my printer yesterday. My printer was very hungry.
A note about printers eating paper: I’m a really ugly crier.
A note about ugly crying: It really cleans out the sinuses. I’m super perky today, but that could be because I ate 3/4 of a bundt cake.
I’ve got a bunch of books to make and the art that goes with them is essential. Today I’m up to my elbows in tea and coffee, making more paper, and running it under an iron to make sure the edges don’t catch in the printer.
Ironing paper: Mine is a life of mystery, danger, and uncontrollable passion.
