Over the weekend I checked out Spokes & Ink (organized by the Genesee Center for the Arts) and had a great time. I showed up just in time to listen to The Astoria Project perform and I made my very own letterpress card! For my card I chose the bicycle (duh!), music note, heart, and pointing finger. Even though there were plenty of colorful inks to choose from I went with black and a splash of red. I’m really happy with how it turned out! I’m hooked – #10 on my 11 goals for 2011 is to learn to letterpress and even though I don’t think the 15 mins I spent on this little card qualifies “learning” it was fun and I’m ready to seriously start looking into classes!
I brought home the lovely “Hello, Friend” poster (in pink, third photo from the top) by Chris Charles of Fly Rabbit Press. Now I just need to find a spot on my walls – I’m running out of space!
Did you attend Spokes & Ink? What did you think? Did you make a card? I’d love to see it!
