Creating your own paper is fun, but sometimes you make a mistake. I was creating this envelope but forgot to use the mesh while removing excess water from the paper. Unfortunately, this pulled away part of the paper I had just made! No more envelope!
I just put this paper aside to dry, then realized I could cut it apart and alter a frame.
Cutting the papers to fit, I adhered them to the frame. Once dry, I used the Proxxon PenSander to sand the edges and remove the excess paper.
Using another sheet of handmade paper, I die cut flowers, flourishes and a butterfly.
Then I sprayed the elements with Imagine Fireworks! Sprays.
I painted the edges of the frame with terracotta paint, then stamped a grid pattern with Brilliance Coffee Ink randomly about the frame. I then added the flourishes, flowers and butterfly to the frame.
I stamped a phrase on the same paper, tore the edges and inked with Brilliance Coffee Ink. I matted the phrase with kraft cardstock and added it to the center of the frame.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
