Yesterday a gallery owner visited the studio, she asked me what I did with my handmade paper. I thought, well, I make the paper.
I showed her how I had cut out the paper in the shape of a heart with Fiskar shaped scissors, added a dried flower, a poppy in this case, and put it onto a piece of mat board. It was shrinked wrapped. I took out a journal a friend had made for me with handmade paper.
A shop that purchases paper from me uses it for calligraphy. Artist friends swap paper with me.
I keep a bucket filled with pulp material in the studio. I also keep a newspaper sheet filled with flower petals drying or dried to add to the pulp.
What do you do with handmade paper?
