This month I will share the shameful secret of my handmade (by me) marbled paper stash. I think my reason for hoarding crafty stuff is partly because some stuff is just so pretty, you don’t want to use it because then it will be gone. I made this paper at the Art Continuum in Ohio in either 1999 or 2000. Yup, it’s over 15 years old. I don’t even remember exactly how I made it. I think there was some sort of gel paints involved and on the turquoise one I can see that we textured with plastic wrap.
I decided after 15 years I could part with a small 4″ x 6″ piece of it. I can’t promise to use the rest though because, well, then it will be gone!
I kept this card relatively simple because I really wanted to showcase the pretty marbled paper. But I was able to work some beautiful handmade roses in. I created the roses with the Small and Medium Tea Rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs
