Unsung Heroes - Kim

Welcome to a month dedicated to our loved ones. We begin the

'Unsung Heroes' 

with post number 1 in a series through out the month by me. 

I started working on a simple project, but have since changed the direction and am now making a book. So over the month I will be updating you with the progress so you can watch the books development.

The first step was deciding to dedicate pages to past and present family in my life. 

To start, I am printing the photos and againg them in various ways. The easiest and most impacting is to print on photo paper, cut or tear, spritz with water, crumple into a ball, then open and ink with a blending tool and yellow/brown ink.

(I swear it works. Eileen Hull was flipping though an old book of mine and she was shocked that it was a recently printed photo.)


Join us this month by adding inspiring art for your unsung hero. It can be anything, a story, a poem, a photo. Maybe a 'found relative'. Use it as the focus and art it up.

We look forward to seeing what you create!
