quality-controlabout a quarter of the hand deckled cards have ink smudges where the edges caught on the printer head
smudge each smudge is being turned into a life size sketch of Actinotus minor
detail funny how the cards with the tiny sketched flowers make more sense
process I have finally started to love my inner critic after 60 years, she keeps my edges honed & the work honest!

    Mo, if anyone can turn a problem into an asset, and cheerfully, it’s you! ((((Mo))))

  3. A friend who was an intermediate school art teacher always encouraged her students to use the ‘less than perfect’ to make it work rather than reach for more paper or clay . . . it’s an art in itself. And your IC? I think she’s learned to trust you.

    Beautiful solution, Mo. Funny how flaws often end up adding interest!

  5. Serendipity-the artist’s friend.

    Just last week I was telling students in art that “mistakes” are opportunities…this is one very happy accident! Love that third photo with the sketching & also because it says “to seas”

    I just love this labour of love – and the random moments of discovery and resolution!

    i love your lines… the creative problem solving is front and center, here… but I love your lines

  10. Wow, turning smudges into a mini work of art – brilliant!
