Timely arrival of an incredibly beautiful collection of handmade paper rounds. If you’re wondering how they were created, Marjorie mentioned the blue/green pieces were made with cotton fiber. She then created a collagraph style print with deep embossing. Finally she colored the paper by hand, using an airbrush. Enjoy!IMG_4481

With a recent visit to Calgary, I was given these beautiful paper rounds to include in the Treewhispers project. I always feel so lucky to hear the stories behind the art and wanted to include this note with the paper rounds as reference and inspiration for others.

Hi Pam,
These are the three paper rounds I brought on the weekend. The paper for these was made in a BVCG (Bow Valley Calligraphy Guild) gathering with supplies provided by Annette Wichmann. Annette blended a mountain of old envelopes and other paper bits and we had a lot of fun with instruction from both Annette and Greta Baack.

I coated my hand made paper with clear gesso and then used alcohol inks (copic marker refills) and rubbing alcohol to make a floral or cactus like image. I scraped into it for some texture. I then added black for a  Zentangle stained glass effect with sumi ink and a small nib (a vintage Esterbrook)
