that was yesterday....

This morning I'm preparing the rose petals so I can incorporate them into papers this afternoon. This is for the new manual I'm making for Artsmart.

using the playful pieces

Getting ready for Artsmart - I need items that have an affordable pricepoint - so more cards....
But - really I'm just having fun working up new ideas to place my small papers in a
considered context.

Oh, and today I got a phone call from Channel 4.
The producers of 'Kirstie Allsopp's Homemade Homewere' are interested
in my paper making skills!!!!

Roses again

As the Rowan leaves papermaking manual was so popular - sold lots - I am revisiting the rose petals. Similar idea but will use images as well as text with the papers ......

Oh.....what to do with these????????

Holly leaves - found cut down in Brockwell Park ages ago ...... they don't dry flat so have to think of a another way to use 'em!

Time to gather thoughts....

cotton - gampi - rose petals - garlic skins
It's been a full on couple of months......walked to my studio in Herne Hill and spent several hours just playing around with the pulps already pigmented.
As usual got the studio in a mess but don't care - just pulled small sheets that may end up in the Dard Hunter keepsake project!
