Made a couple of small notebooks using some of my grid papers
The lines on the covers are created using a embossing tool

While I was out photographing the blossoms I took some of tree lilacs.......
bit of a difficult colour to reproduce and I tried to catch the lighter colours of the inside petals to contrast with the darker shade .....


Some very delicate pinks - with a hint of darker pink fibres

A day of colouring and pulling....... a very pink day!!!

Spring Blossom

With all the blossoms around - I think I need to be influenced by them - this photo was taken outside my home -
The petals will loose their colour when processed so I'm not going to use them - just try and reproduce paper that uses their colour and delicacy - watch this space.....

This will also give me a chance to try and create pigments to use with pulp. Right know I have to order them from the America - time to see if I can make my own. I'm going to read 'Colour' by Victoria Finlay to get me in the right head space!!
