Heck yes!!! Today is the day that I finally started the more dramatic colors!!! RED!! It’s funny though because I wasn’t planning on red today…I actually wanted to do my dark purple, but something told me no. Could’ve been the ink screaming at me to not do a darker color first (had just made the purple color and was staring at it for a while…), could’ve been my need for the dramatic color of red in my life…could’ve been the flaming cheeto fries that I bought at the 7/11 next door. What ever it was, I’m glad it spoke to me.
I am very very very happy about how this buddy came out today. It just wasn’t catching my eye or my breath when I looked at it before, but now…ermerger, I almost cried when I pulled my first print. Wow. I LOVE IT. It’s got the dramatic flare that I needed. Pur sure. The colors are now starting to separate themselves and it’s turning into something awesome. Though now that I say this, and you see the colors separating things out, you start to notice the iffy places in design…I won’t tell you where because I’m hoping that I’m the only one who sees them XD oops…
This is the starting block for today
The leaves are done

It’s kinda funny how my snacks for the day tend to be in the color theme for my next layer. It was unintentional today for me to print the red color, but I think my consciousness was telling me something. I had gone to 7/11 to pick up a soda for my lunch and saw the cheetos…they called my name so I bought them. I was going to print purple, the cheetos told me not to…byaha! Inner Peas was my snack for when I printed green…weird…but if this is a trending theme with my printing, I’m scared for the final black layer…I don’t particularly like black licorice…maybe I’ll buy some Japanese nori or something…XD
With tired hands and a sore back, I can now relax tonight with a cold beer and a kid movie XD I did the hard work today, I deserve some relaxation.
Unfortunately though, I found the boo-boo print. The one where my registration got so out of whack for purple it is pretty much a dud print meow.
“1st Because Yuck.” ’nuff said….
So yeah…this print is officially the first print that I test run on!!! BLEH.
Looks fine, you say? Looks pretty and awesome and great, you say? (Thank you, but you are wrong, my friends…) Here’s a close up as to why…
Just look at those bags under her eye!!
Look at that purple showing!!
Anywho, on to carving for the darker purple! Again….o.O heehee….And by on to carving, I mean, time to watch that movie…:D ‘gnight!
