Paper Post

Here are some pics of some paper play I did a couple days ago. I am off kilter with all the health junk, I feel really wishy washy. Do I like it? Should I post it? whatever, here's what I've been playing with in the 2 free hours I've had so far this month. Painting deli paper. Those blue shapes have Wilton written on them and were in a cheap bag at my favorite but now defunct antique store. sigh. I used some stencils and sprays, just kind of experimenting.

Here I take a deli paper that I've used to protect my work table or clean a brush on to use to make yet more paper!!
I gathered up some napkins to tear and glue down. Don't forget to seperate the plys. Some napkins have more than 2.
Start tearing and gluing.

Voila, finished page. I'm not sure if I will use this for Michelle Ward's Crusade this month. I didn't exactly follow directions......

I made another one too. I added a thin layer of gesso to unify page after this pic was taken.
These are not finished works of Art by any means. Sometimes I need to just experiment and see what develops. I'll keep you posted. xoSusan


  1. Your papers look fabulous and I bet the process is fun too!

  2. The papers you've created are stunning! I love your experimental approach and the results you've achieved here ... this is my favourite way to play. Look forward to seeing where they lead you next ....

  3. You may not think these are awesome, but I do! Can't wait to see what develops! Hope you're feeling better. Hugs, Terri xoxo
