Make your own mixed media 'Artist Paper'
ever fancy making your own artist paper like the ones you get in Somerset Studios magazine?
i always thought, hey, gotta try making my own 'artist paper', ...really fun to make! just lotsa collage, paint, stencilling, stamping, embossing...and the list goes on! i did mine on a Fine Grain - cartridge 98lbs (8.3x11.7) inches paper from Daler Rowney. Here's a few favourites of mine...
my hubby choose this one as his 'favourite'

i'm thankful to Ed, for 'opening' another 'door' for me @{Create} Make It Happen
