I am obsessed with paper. Not just any kind. The handmade one.
I love the feeling it conveys - the rough yet fragile surface showing its fiber veins, telling a story of its own... Bearing the stamp of creativity and imagination of the artist who created it.
Yesterday, I bought myself the book called Paper - from the handmade style series by Murdoch Books, and I've already leafed through it numerous times. Filling my eyes with beauty and discovering techniques I would love to try.
The book is a wonderful invitation to explore the creative potential of paper whether recycled or commercial offering elaborate description of gorgeous decorative effects such as embossing, embedding and laminating.
