My paper-making sessions are getting longer, and the results are better. I’m getting more paper of better thickness. Each session teaches me something, as well as tires me out! This batch was again made from tall dead field grass. The lighter colored sheets resulted from adding "cotton linters" to the pulp. I added lavender buds to the large whiter sheet bottom right, but they didn’t stay whole during blending. The specks smell good though. Some sheets have visible grass segments, I added clover to one, and they all have a lot of texture. I like having texture, it’s always more interesting. I need to somehow start using more of these papers, perhaps in traditional sewn journal and bookmaking. My husband made two small molds for me, thus the three sheets bottom left. They could make neat small book covers!
My inspiration still comes from nature and making paper, so I’m linking this post to Art Journal Journey.
