Handmade paper

I have thoroughly enjoyed making this beautiful batch of handmade papers recently. The ultimate colour and textures are simply beautiful. I mix the recycled paper pulp with water in my laundry sink and then use different sized molds and deckles to create the sheets. I dry the papers on a sheet of glass in the sun or on the glass of my shower.

The papers incorporate a variety of different additions: leaf skeletons, confetti, rice paper insets of hearts, stars, dragonflies and doves and torn pieces of Japanese or French texts.

They will feature in my Etsy shop very soon ... once pressed, folded and packaged!
