I finished the colouring on all nine Mixed Messages III prints this week. Here they are stacked (on the left) in the map case next to Mixed Messages I.
I will be posting the full set of prints on Instagram starting tomorrow, but here are the first three to give you an idea.
There will be a Mixed Messages IV. (I don’t know if I will continue the series after that. It remains to be seen how much I continue to enjoy the process of creating these.)
Here is the base print design.
I have also started work on my book for Rings.
The original plan was to create a binding using O-rings, but Covid Delta Variant numbers are high here, and since I have a large supply of hair elastics —David purchased them and then didn’t like them— I will use some of those and avoid an unnecessary trip to a store.
I have also collected various packages of wooden picks which can be used with the elastics.
There will be more about the project next week.
If you would like to make a little Hallowe’en-themed card, you might try making the one I posted in October last year.
You can find a printable file and the instructions here.

Last thing for the week, but definitely not least:
