Creating Decorative Paper
While an infinite variety of ready-made paper exists, luscious papers decorated with your own hands can be customized to fit a particular theme, motif, and color scheme. This book shows how to decorate your own paper with simple techniques and everyday materials. The author explains how to use scraping, layering, solvents, resists, wet-in-wet effects, stamping, and many other methods to produce beautiful decorative papers. The techniques incorporate many creative and easy to find tools and materials: salt, craft glue, bubble wrap, waxed paper, bottle caps, instant coffee and more. Filled with inspiring photos of beautiful decorated papers and step-by-step instructions - including paper flowers, rolled-paper beads, and an altered book journal - that will get readers started using their own decorative papers.
