Homemade & Recycled

I made my own paper this afternoon….. Yipeee!!!!!!!… I’m soooo happy it with it …..can you see me grinning from where you are?  😀

My hubby built me the frame etc, that I needed to start making my own paper, it’s sooo much fun, plus you get to recycle all your old envelopes, junk mail etc and make gorgeous paper!

So here is my first attempt, the mulch just out of the frame and I added some Wild Orchid Crafts Natural Skeleton Leaves, plus some iridescent glitter from my shed..

This is my 3rd DT project for the month and will feature as next week’s DT Project on Youtube, but I just couldn’t wait to show you all

I will make some other variations during the coming week and will share these next weekend 🙂

 

Once the paper has dried completely… this is what it looks like

 

Now all I need to do is incorporate this into some handmade cards 🙂

 

 

I’m off to make some more 😉

 

Thanks so much for popping in!
