I love to make stationery and I have been trying out some different designs lately, like making fluid borders the Arnold Grummer way! His paper making kits are the bomb and they will get you making your own paper quickly and easily.
The first thing we all do is when we are making handmade paper is to decide what color paper we are going to recycle. There is the choosing of scraps we collected to tear into tiny stamp size pieces and then when we are making a border, we need two colors! The joy of designing your own paper is all about style! AND if you add some Gold Dust then you are adding pizazz to your paper!
For this project, I made 2 different sets of stationary with matching envelopes but it's the same steps for both colors. First thing I did was to use my pour mold to create the base of the paper and then while the paper is still sitting in your vat of water you will want to squirt in your colored pulp along the side of the deckle. This ensures a fluid look to the border.
