ID: "wk 18 - Languages - Crazy Fold - Hello
Size closed: 4.5"dia

On Calligraphy paper, I colored both sides with Pan Pastels. One side with yellow ochre and red and the backside with green and blue. Wrote in the the words with a 2.4 parallel pen and Sumi ink in Carrie Imai's Carrioka style lettering. The main English word "Hello" and various other languages...

I started with a 4"h x 20"w calligraphy paper. Kept a starting tail of 2.5" unscored and then marked the top edge at 5/8" & 1-7/8" to the end of the paper. The bottom edge started at the 2.5"point and then continued with 5/8", and then repeat of 5/8" & 1-7/8". When everything is scored and folded, I folded over the 2.5" starter section as a cover

The little closure gadget is heavy weight cardstock, 2 pieces glued together and 2 holes punched in the center to loop my cord through. The top section is 2 of 3/4" circles glued together, hole punched in and a blue brad inserted. A knot tied at the thickness of the folds, beads added and another knot tied to hold them. The closure slides on.

ID: Wk 19 - Limerick - What Happens When
Size: 8"w x 9.5"h

On Arches Text Wove paper using an Aristro Extra Fine purple pen, wrote out the words in a tall monoline skinny style. Hatched all the enclosed spaces with a magenta toned metallic Color Pen.

Words: What happens when you retire? 
You really don't have to enquire - 
No job and no phone
There's no place like home
And your checkbook's about to expire.


ID: wk 20 - Song Lyric - Black Denim Trousers
Size: 12"w x 4"h

This was created in my Japanese 4 needle bond booklet. On yellow toned Mulberry paper, using a 1.5 Parallel pen and Sumi ink wrote out the lyric words in a Curlz style lettering. Drew a motorcycle wheel just running off the page... He was in a hurry.

Words: He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots and a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back. he had a hopped-up cycle that took off like a gun. that fool was the terror of highway 101.

Lyrics by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller  1955        Recorded by "The Cheers"
