I taught my Fallbrook School of the Arts Book Arts class how to make this paper today. We used ephemera bits:papers, metal washers that I found near my son's metal shop, hand carved stamp papers, and other great stuff. These were layered and glued between organzia and thin rice papers. Next week we're going to make exposed stitch beaded book using these papers as covers. Delightful!

Speaking of Book Arts, my next class starts soon!

Elfin Forest Reserve

Took my Friday watercolor and pastel classes to Elfin Forest Reserve on Friday. We had a grand time painting by the stream under the oaks. The morning air was lovely, the conversations were humming, the cheese and crackers divine and and birds were singing our songs.....a very creative morning indeed.......
