On Monday whilst cleaning up from the grandsons weekend visit I got way laid by the papers we had been painting together. Given wax crayons, texture plates,stamps, punches and Koh-i-noor paints and a little bit of subtle direction they always produce wonderful papers for me to play with - which is what I've been doing in between other arty things ever since.
Children always make the most wonderful papers - they are not concerned with producing anything arty or limited by what they can or can't do. Paint is sploshed around by the gallon and when it all eventually dries some lovely effects are achieved quite accidentally.
Add a little bit of stitch and ideas happen.
I photographed every pleasing combination and then bundle all the pieces into the box marked 'painted papers'.
