Paste Paper ( PaperArts )
This last weekend, Terry was gone for 3 whole days. I have had a ankle giving me some problems -- so I stayed in, giving it time to rest. I have had some trouble finding art supplies. While my friend Joan was here we found a place that had some gouache in little jars. We tried using it for paste paper and really had a good time. However, I tried to letter with it yesterday and it was horrible!
Paper is my next issue. I have found Canson MiTiens (?) and some acrylic paint. When I was home in October, Barbara Close helped me pack a lot of Arches Text Wove. She kept saying, "Sheryl, that's a lot of paper!" Thank goodness I brought so much! So, long story short -- while Terry was gone, I cooked the best batch of paste I have ever made! Spent Friday evening playing. Saturday, I drafted a couple of templates for project ideas I have had for a while -- so, hopefully I will have some of those to show you soon.
I know, I know my designs are a little redundant -- my next project is to go shopping for tools.
Thanks for stopping by -- Sheryl
