so here's the nitty gritty... i used prismacolor and faber castell colored pencils on muslin that i'd soaked in walnut ink water and then painted with watered down ivory acrylic paint. each page is 4" x 4", with a tab sewn to it that i punched holes in so i could make a little book.
i wanted to experiment with colors, shapes, etc. on the faces, and a lot of them were started by something i could already see on the page, like a wrinkle or a walnut ink stain (see eyebrow above).
a print from my pogo printer - loved having that with me!
the back of the first book - this kind of binding was my favorite. the book laid almost completely flat.
front page of the second book - i think this binding looks nicer but it leaves a little hump when the book's open.
