Paste Papers...

On Sunday I met up with my friend Leslie and we went to Maria's in Fremont for an art play day. This time we got messy making paste papers and we had a blast! Leslie has already posted about it HERE and posted a ton of photos from our day but of course I have more photos to show as well!

We got to play in this wonderful studio space (thank you Maria!) with lots of room to spread out and make the mess we wanted to make...

With lots of room for our papers to dry...

And yes there was a slight breeze so sometimes we had to chase after our papers!


And finally we laid them all out to see what we had done -- TONS of papers made and equally as many laughs!We used art paste, acrylic paints, stencils, marking tools like combs and other things to make textures, and anything we could think of!





And these are most of the ones I did. I had a couple more still outside drying and a few experiments in my journal as well.
