Where has the time gone!

There have been several 'real' projects that have taken most of my time recently. I say 'real' projects because  they are projects with deadlines, for other people, people who are willing to pay for services rendered. I hope to be able to share a couple of these in the future. Needless to say, there has been little time for the self indulgent creative stuff. But hopefully that time will come soon.

In the meantime, this is a picture of a recent envelope job in copper ink. Don't you just love the look of metallic inks.

This ink is gouache with gold and copper Pearl Ex Pigments added to it. The envelopes took a little longer than most because the liner was opaque and the ink requires lots of stirring to keep the metallics flecks suspended. But I don't mind, the look is rich and stands proud on the page.


  1. Very pretty. I love they way metallic paints look.

  2. Lovely Jo! I enjoy seeing all your work. :)
