Paper Making

This summer I had time to make some paper using old newspapers and little bits of  ..... netting from onions and a little twine ....
Below ... dyed cheesecloth with bits of thread from some napkins I made plus the third photo shows one with flower petals.....
Bits of novelty yarns are fun to use in paper .....
Here's one with a flower petal plus some of those threads from the napkins that I finished with a raveled edge ....
Now to make some clay tiles as these were made with wall curves in mind but little paper features are fun to use in any mixed media, cards, etc. They are just fun to make even if only to make a stack!

Oh in the top photo are some papers with spices (turmeric, pepper flakes), some flower petals, crochet yarn and paint.

Hope you're having a fun, creative week!
