Finetec Inks

I had a problem with soft linen envelopes that with everything I used, the inks always bled.  Then someone recommended Finetec inks which I actually bought at IAMPETH.  They did the job, no bleeding and with the various shades of gold, they had one that showed up well with the phantom liner!  So relieved.
I highly recommend them!

Some of my Unfinished Collages

 I do love the colors in this but am at a loss as to what I need to do to finish it...the theme was tapestry.
 For this one I can visualize a quote in black ink on the right side...this was from a class with Luce where we did prints from plants and I combined the prints with other papers.
 Just needs something more.  The window transfer is from a photograph I took in Grand Rapids, Michigan when we were downtown at Artprize.

Collages at the Aurora Town Hall

 I have three collages to be picked up at the end of the week next week.  The third one is one of my dragon-fly series.  This top one is an in-progress photo.
 Sorry, forgot to adjust!

Time to design a new Valentine Card

Trip to the Shedd Aquarium

 What a beautiful perfect day for a train ride to the Aquarium!
 I forgot my camera as this was a hurried morning to get there early!  But Mick had his phone for a few photos. Nice skyline photos.  The weather was sunny and mild in the forties.



 Everett's favorite- the hook!
 Sawyer relaxing on the train.

 Lunch with all of us.  Marshall, Emily and the boys, Mandy and Prentice met us there.

New Christmas Card

I tried out several color combinations and finally realized I prefer a limited color palette.  Then I started cropping the images and really liked how that looked.  Off to the printer!

Folded pen work

Enjoying the folded pen and watercolor.  I've been sick and missed our study group but hope to still do making of the folded pens sometime.
