ID: wk 13 - The Little Prince - Laughing Star
Size: 12"w x 9"h

On Bee Super Deluxe paper, created my background. Adhered die cut stars then sprinkled with Color Burst powders "Night Sky" and "Deep Space", misted heavily with water. When dry used a Zebra pointed nib and Kuretake Silver Mica ink in a Bookhand style.

"in one of the STARS I shall be LIVING in one of them I shall be LAUGHING and so it will be as if all the stars were LAUGHING, when you look at the sky at night... you - only you - will have stars that can LAUGH!" 
"The Little Prince" Antoine de Saint Exupéry

ID: Wk 14 - Grammar Joke - It Was Tense

Never realized what this type of sentence was called... Live and Learn...

On Bee Super Deluxe Paper wrote out the large words using a 6.0 Parallel pen double loaded with various colors of Holbien gouache. The smaller words with a 2.4 Parallel pen and Sumi ink. Graphite shading in the large words.




ID: wk 15 - Solitude Quote - Voltaire
Size: 6"w x 5.5"h

I came across a piece done by Amity Parks and was inspired...

I used a Zig Writer - bullet tip and watercolors on Stonehenge paper.

Quote: The happiest of lives is a busy solitude. Voltaire



ID: wk 16 - Practice - Last Minute

Italic and flourishing - 2 of the hardest things for me to learn so far. But after Barbara Close's Italic class I'm feeling more confident. Things are looking a little more consistent, the flourishes  I'm starting to like...

I love this quote. Someone in class quoted it and I had to write it down...

Arches Text Wove, 2.4 Parallel pen and Sumi ink



ID: Wk 16 - Practice - Aphorism - A Good Time
Size: 8"w x 11"h

on genoa bond calligraphy paper, 4.5 and 2.4 Parallel pens, Vermillion and Black Sumi ink in Italic with flourishes. Still practicing both...

Normally Italic is 5PW h. I did mine approx 3.5PW h for the 4.5pen, 1st doing the Vermillion, when dry with the black.




ID: Wk 17- Impressions - Hello cards
Size: each card - 5.5"w x 4.25"h

I wrote out the word "HELLO" in an  Uncial style, cut it out and adhered it to another piece of cardstock. Ran it through it my embossing machine with Arches Text Wove then hit the high points and the rest of the paper with Distress ink pads. Adhered to a card base and added a ribbon.

For the 2nd card I also cut out a Deco Rose from my clear rubber. Inked the stamp with a yellow and red Distress pad, misted lightly with water and stamped, repeating for all the roses.

ID: Wk 17- Impressions - Metal Love card
Size: each card - 6"w x 4.5"h

Tooled a piece of metal both on the front and back. Applied alcohol ink using a Kurecolor Alcohol Based Dyestuff ink in pink, rubbed some off then applied Kuretake Fude brush ink. Rubbed that lightly as well.

Adhered to my white cardstock base. Cut a frame from black cardstock and wrote the quote using a pointed nib and Holbien gouache, a mix of Permanent white and Opera Pink.

Quote: Love is like wildflowers; it's often found in the most unlikely places. Ralph Waldo Emerson
