patterned paper tutorial
i have been a little obsessed with making my own paper lately. i have honestly wanted to be more original in my pieces lately and that means making my own paper. so i am upcycling some of my scrapbooking papers and painting them. i have a ton of paper, so i thought that i should reuse the ones that i am not in love with anymore and make something beautiful. and today i would love to share with you a tutorial on how to make your own papers.
old scrapbooking paper
i turned the scrapbooking paper to the white side to ensure a blank canvas. if you try to cover over the other patterns it will take many more layers of paint.
tape the piece of paper to a board.
paint the entire piece of paper with your color of choice and allow it to dry.
using matte medium plaster tissue paper, clothing patterns and old letters on paper. let dry.
apply paint with an old credit card or brayer. let dry.
take large bubble wrap or lids to apply paint in a circular pattern to paper.
