Handmade Paper











I went to my Texas Art Glass meetup today.....I know should be working with glass right. Well we decided last month that we wanted to learn to make handmade papers. So this is what we did....I had to work late so I went rushing in and got mine done late.....I love the pink one, it has little flicks of white and shinny gold with lavender pods....it smells wonderful and is big enough I can make a jouranl cover from this one. I already can see the idea in my head....  The brown one is a mixture of things and the first one I made...the yellow seeds scrattered thru out this really make this paper special.  I can see me doing this project again..


I love the papers and the texture they each had...the other ladies were so creative with thiers...adding leaves and other fun things small butterflies...Lovely hand made papers to use in craft projects. Watch for later posts where I will actually use these papers for something fun....
