  1. Wow. You really are on a purple binge! I love the way you USE UP stuff!!!

    1. I did actually paint a lot of pages for this book but I used old prints and recycled papers to paint on. I still have a stash of old prints left so I think I will have to start on a new book soon, use some more of it up.

  2. You might be in a purple haze but its working well,love the book
