glue it tuesday: week 16
I seem to have settled into a comfortable posting routine of glue on Tuesday and paint on Friday, with all the other crafty bits & bobs sandwiched in between wherever they may fall. This week I have to switch my glue and paint, though, because I'm working on a collage project that required an all-day painting bonanza (see mess above) and still is not dry (thank you humidity), so it will have to be tomorrow or Thursday before I can get to the cut & paste part. Hopefully by Friday I'll be able to show the final finished pieces (they're samples for a class I'm teaching next month.)
Thanks to the surprising number of you who stuck it out in the last post all the way through to the magic carpets and beer! If you're really taken with miniature books like I was when I went on my thumb book binge, you'll be fascinated by this article my friend Sarah wrote (she's an archivist) on a 1896 printing of A Letter from Galileo to Madame Christina di Lorena (original published in 1636) that measures just under one inch. I've never seen movable type so tiny!
As always, thanks for joining us -- and if you are new this week, welcome! We have only one rule and that is: if it's glued, it goes. Unless you paint, like I do. So you see you can post pretty much anything here and get away with it.
