December 17, 2016


I love doing test pages. I love them even more when I have a new project in mind. I'm trying not to get overly excited about some 2017 projecty things, but I also can't help be excited if I'm excited! Whelp, we'll see what happens. Probably won't have time to work on it til the new year anyhoo.


You know it bloody cold when you have to take a hammer to all the ice jamming up your way out to the car so you can finally get rid of a ton of donations, as well as bring groceries home. So glad all that crap is done.

Shannon, I know those are test pages but what are they test pages for? And they all look the same! I'm confused, LOL.

WOw that's brutal Suzie! Salt + time can work wonders too. Glad you got donations out and groceries in, that's a good thing.

The test pages *are* all the same. I was testing how different paper reacts to different mediums, like if marker bleeds through to the back of the page or if using paint buckles the paper. The results were surprizing!

Good point! We have been using my kosher salt for the path but I should put more in this area.

Oh they're different papers!!! That makes much more sense now, LOL.
