Book #040 Kiss-A-Me





I never get tired of paint samples, especially the names. The best names are the ones that have nothing to do with color; the very very best thing is a whole strip of colors - with no name having anything to do with color. The samples here are all colors of love, romance, kissing, sighing...

The construction of the book is probably obvious: a heart-shaped accordion with glued on covers. The ovals are punched out of paint chips - names included. They are slipped into slits in the pages and then embellished with more color names and shapes. The edges of the pages are brushed with iridescent watercolor...it looks much more shimmery and subtle in person.

This is a fun idea for a lot of occasions. I hope I remember it. My brain is a sieve these days.
