Art Drop Day is the first Tuesday in September and I've participated in it for many years. It always interested me in having people discover free art — a gift from a stranger.
This week I've been fooling around with Brusho, an ink and dye-based crystal pigment.
My husband bought me a beautiful bouquet last week and every day, some of the flowers wilt so I'm taking them out of the vase and pressing them under some books, hoping to preserve them to enjoy over the coming winter.
I will be dropping 7 hand-made notebooks to celebrate Art Drop Day — Denver.
Yes, I'm still engrossed in making chunky books. I think it's because each page gives me the ability to hone my color and composition skills. Each page is a little work of art.
