Get Artsy Week 4 - Fiber Paste

This was such a fun technique, using the fiber paste leaves a texture like handmade paper.  I began by adding the paste through stencils then covered a texture plate with the paste to see how that came out,, I had to be patient and wait for it to dry which was not easy!  It worked great, it peeled of the plate easily and I wondered how it would work through a die cutter, I used the Tim Holtz doily die cut and it worked fine.

When the textured papers were dry they were cut into squares and rectangles and placed around my photographs.  I used water colours to colour them.  I placed the doilies each side to balance the page.

Need to catch up with weeks 5 and 6 now!
