In Praise of Paper

I love paper! Did you know?!

I have been continuing with Daisy Yellow’s Daily Paper Prompts. Prompt #52: White Page has been my favourite so far. I have thrown everything at it: gesso, acrylic paints, collaged pictures and text, fabric, hand stitching, machine stitching, oil paintsticks. What fun!

I have also completed prompts #47 & #50 – stamping circles & colouring book:

I have also had some lovely paper-related post in the last week. First of all some papers received in a private swap from La Wendula:

Oh my!!! If you haven’t come across La Wendula’s wonderful collaged artwork before, I strongly suggest having a look at her Flickr photostream here. Her artwork is just amazing.

And then, today, I have received a wonderful prize from Tammy of Daisy Yellow:

art journal bingo

It is a set of art journal “bingo” style prompt cards. I never need be stuck for art journalling ideas again!! If you would like some of these cards, Tammy has them for sale on her site – read all about how to use them here.

Did I tell you I love paper?
