sunflowers &papermaking

Preparing some materials for a new batch of paper I am making this weekend! I am attempting to experiment with more text from novels in the paper…and my partner gave me sunflowers so I also would like to experiment with those in the paper making process! I will keep yall updated !!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and that your new years will be filled with love, merriment, and wonderful people.

all hand sewn, hand drawn, and watercolor on handmade cotton paper


I wish that I could figure out how to post my flickr images on the new blogger interface instead of uploading from my computer. I love the new layout but I like that my images are larger when using flickr...however when I put the code into the blog post in the new format, only the link appears as opposed to the image...does anyone have suggestions? Thanks!

The octopus is nearllyyy finished. I am still being fairly nitpicky over the last bit of details. Le petit renard is based on one of my favorite stories, Le petit prince.It is still super in progress…a lot of detailing to come! And watercolors too.
