A Final Look at Halloween

 


Tomorrow is the day!  The day this entire month has been leading up to and here is a final scare just for you!  The kick off for the holidays is about to begin. 

I have really been enjoying playing with and mixing paper pulps lately to create variegated colors of paper.  For this one, I mixed a black pulp into a sheet of orange.  It was created using one of the Papermill Pro Kits using the basic instructions, but before pulling the deckle out of the water I added small scoops of black and lightly mixed the two by hand.  As I pulled the deckle out of the water the two pulps settled to form the sheet creating this gorgeous orange and black sheet.  The white paper was created using the kit and once it was dry I used it in my embossing machine and stamped onto it.  Isn't fun that you can use your craft tools with handmade paper?  It creates a totally amazing and different look for everything.

Now onto creating for November and the next holiday!  Have fun tomorrow everyone!

  1. Peg - you've become quite a papermaker! I had no idea an embossing plate would work so well with handmade paper. Did you have to make the white sheet thinner? Fantastic! Thanks!
