Floating ink, in theory

You know how musicians riff on the guitar or writers interpret short writing prompts? Part of the process of making really looks quite fumbly to outsiders. To generate ideas and designs, creative people have to mess about, juggle ideas, and rehearse possibilities. It takes some level of “not knowing” [and refining] and being OK with that uncertainty WELL INTO the process. So developing lyrics + captivating chord progressions is usually not automatic or instantaneous. At least that is what I’ve gleaned from a variety of podcasts.

So without further introduction, here are two different experimental series of 3x3” cards. In each set, I’m using a clear polymer to try to make the ink appear to be floating or suspended.
