I love holding handcrafted paper, feeling their unique textures, then cutting and arranging them to make little collages to fit on cardstock. I find these papers as far away as France, and as close as my neighborhood art supply stores. Sometimes I even find bits of ephemera in thrift stores to add to my arrangements!
The papers in this collage came from Melodies Graphiques in Paris, Hiromi Paper, and Paper Source. Digitally printed, originally collaged from handmade papers. Card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in., printed on heavy stock.
