This morning I decided to prepare some of my favorite new paper. This was just a simple exercise of loosely applying water, watercolor and alcohol inks wet on wet. It is roughly 6 x 40 and is the beginning stages of pages that will either be sewn into my DisCo book or I may use as the beginning of an accordian style journal. The paper is Arches Text Wove - this paper is magical! It is 100% cotton and virtually indestructable. In fact, I plan to put it in the washing machine as a test! Below the full sized paper is two close ups. Feel free to print them as backgrounds for your own work. NB - I digitally extracted the background of the vertical image so as to not distract from the page I'm preparing.
