More Recent Prints
The next three are related ~ same plate, different prints.
And the last is a one-off that I like.
I've made six PINK books this week for a personal challenge. NorBAG has monthly book exchanges that follow different themes. Although I don't intend to actually exchange any books, this year I decided to participate in each challenge by pushing myself to create at least one book for each theme. February's, of course, is Valentines. I printed a bunch of papers last week with a variety of pinks and have been making little books ever since. They're all accordion style books ~ there are so many options here ~ because I hadn't made many previously although I've been enchanted by them. I decided last night I'd make six more books because there are yet more accordion possibilities that I want to try.
...although just using PINK is a challenge in itself. I've never been drawn to it before, except for a brief pink phase in the mid-1980s -- pink Swatch, pink tennies, pink workout clothes. But I have to say that I'm enjoying the cool little books I've made and the stack of pink stuff on my work table.
