inky collaboration

“The secret is to keep adding voices, adding ideas, and moving things around as you put together your life. If you’re lucky, putting together your life is a process that will last through every single day you’re alive.”
Ann Patchett


You don't always need a reason. The fun is just getting immersed in the process.

Our favorite thing is to do a wavy line or swirl with water and add a drop of ink with a calligraphy pen, the ink is pulled into the water. My older daughter (12) was home from school with a cold last week so we collaborated on some inky wonderfulness! Sick days shoud be restful, but they don't need to be boring! We used 4 different colors of j. herbin inks. We moved the inks around with chopsticks, calligraphy pens and water.
