Judith and I have been wanting to make more paste paper so Friday we went nuts.
All sheets except the last one are 18 X 24.
What the chrysanthemum tool does when you twist it on the paper. (above)
Above a few drops of blue paint was drying on the smacker when I started to use it on the yellow. You can't even do that on purpose.
This was fun. Whenever I have a few drops of paint left, I run for my sketchbook so that instead of washing the paint down the drain, I somehow add it to my sketchbook. Well, today I didn't feel like walking upstairs to my studio so I took a half sheet of paper (18 X 12) and "deposited the paint" thinking I could glue it in the sketchbook later. I used the smacker first, placing left over paint on the smacker then smacking onto the dry paper. *Paste paper is made on wet paper. Then I used the chrysanthemum tool
The chrysanthemum tool named by Marcella's brother who was the first to make one. I just stole his idea!
One of Judith's stamps she made with self-stick fun foam stuck to scrap pieces of laminate flooring. Great idea Judith. Then I borrowed it!
This will never see the inside of my sketchbook.
