ink runs


Two pages in one post,


Playing with ink never tires, never gets samey, never ceases to amuse me.

Alternating between transparent, opaque, and water in drips and runs, watching the pigments flow and merge;
Pulling at the puddle edges with a brush or pen or stick… imprinting in wet ink…

Big love for ink!

unlikely treasure


..buried in the paper recycling box (I was scuffling about for envelopes and scraps to dye) – when I found this:

No. Haven’t uploaded the wrong photo.

It is the manual to my faithful old printer. (11 years old, some bits have fallen off, but still working, I digress.)

The treasure is in the 7/8 of the pages which are printed in languages foreign to me, almost entirely text-based, on nice absorbant paper.

I love using printed paper especially when the forms of the words aren’t distracted by their meaning.


All it wants is some color…Beginning in drips



Water and ink, drippier and drippier


Then the bit where my inner-kid gets all excitable


Gasp!


Ta-da!


A good swish of dylusions yellow to soften the purples, then on to the next page while this dries!



I’ll post more as they dry and develop 🙂
