The Spots!

I knew handmade paper was good for feathers and flowers, but fur? That's a new one . . . for me.

Mosaic Treasure Box

Taking advantage of the incredible sticking power of newly made paper and the abundance of pint-sized plastic berry containers this time of year, I made this little stained-glass treasure box.

Start by making sheets of different colors.


While the sheets are still very wet, tear off tiny pieces and stick them on the outside of the plastic container --- in a random fashion.
Keep it up.
This technique is very forgiving. You can move the pieces, overlap them. etc/
This takes a little time, but you can leave it and come back to it.
I'll bet this technique would work nicely with more subdued shades.
