Handmade Paper from the Archives


I was inspired by Lynda Shoup, a mixed media artist, to share some of my handmade paper.  She wrote a post about using silk scraps and wool to make yarn.  What an amazing idea.  I have saved scraps from ribbon embroidery, silk embroidery and cross stitch.  These fibers make beautiful paper when mixed with the paper pulp.  It has been a long time since I have made paper, but I still have lots of fiber scraps.  The purple paper is made mostly from dryer lint.

  1. Jennifer, what wonderful paper! I have been hankering after doing some paper making (I haven't made any in about 10 years). You have inspired me to get back at it!
