I am so thrilled to share the news that I am part of the first Semester at the PaperArtsy blog.
There is a new format to the blog posts and challenges at the PaperArtsy blog. To start the New Year the challenge theme is Fragile Papers. For the duration of this theme there will be various artists sharing a tutorial focusing on all manner of fragile papers. Fragile papers are something I routinely use, most often in the form of vintage French book text but it might also be vintage dressmaker tissue, vintage sheet music, fragile found papers, there is such a wealth of papers which fall into this category.
Working with book pages was a huge hurdle for me to overcome in the early days of stamping because tearing into a book, how could I possibly bring myself to do so when I wouldn’t even turn down the corner of a page to bookmark it! However, in time, with books so distressed they were falling apart anyway, it has made it easier for me although even yet I still get a twinge of, should I really be doing this.
I am sharing with you a sneaky peek of my project. Over at the PaperArtsy blog there is a tutorial along with the inspiration for it.If you would like to view the tutorial then please visit HERE. I hope it will inspire you to join in with the Fragile Papers challenge.
Thank You, as always for your visit.
