A Little of This, a Little of That

More colors that have brightened the miserable darkness of last week's weather.
i only printed two of the green because i didn't like the color. now i love it and can't seem to duplicate it. i'm printing a magenta or red this week. undecided.

the whole enchilada

this color is called OCHRE. these are the ones i still have to cut down. each one. what a stack, sheesh.
the ones that i already cut
They're so pretty all stacked together. This has been such a fun class.

And Ryan's valentine's day present. Well...if you can call it a present. It's a lyric from a Death Cab for Cutie song with a wrong word in it. It's a joke between us and I decided to throw it together on Thursday night {before Valentine's Day} so it would be done for Sunday.
I printed a few, unsure of the size I wanted it to be, but ended up only finishing two. I left out the O from ROCKS so I could add a heart. The hearts are made out of burlap and sewn with gray thread.

11x17 and 11x14 - we think we like the longer one best. i didn't have a frame on hand for it.

Wow! You are so creative! What program do you use to make your writing so cute?

I love the Valentine's Day present and love the song. I think I might sing it that way from now on.

Chelsea, seriously so cute! I love those recipe cards. Are you selling them on Etsy?

Caitlin - I'm in a community art center class for letterpress, which is awesome because I can use whatever type they have available in the lab there. The poster was just a bunch of different fonts and sizes they had that I put together one night. It took about an hour to put the letters together, another hour or so to set it up and then 2 hours to print and clean up (clean up takes the majority of the time - it's not fun).

I love Ryan's Valentine.
