I’m happy with the decision to break up the transparency idea into two separate books, but while transparency book #1 (squashed items between clear packing tape) is coming together fairly easily, this vellum book is lacking clear direction.

I refuse to apologize for that awful pun.

The materials I’ve collected so far include color gel filters and films, a translucent record sleeve with lots of super interesting creases and tears, and overlapping paint stick writing on vellum. I suppose all of it could somehow be combined, but the ideas could just as easily be their own jumping-off point.

Or maybe I’ll just keep searching for the one idea that rises right to the top of the list. I’m seriously considering saving these materials for later and just making a clear shrinky dink book.
