Pretty handpainted paper...


Handpainted paper

I saw an older episode of the Carol Duval Show the other day (it was at seven o'clock in the morning-the only time I get to myself!) and she had a recipe for taking brown paper bags and turning them into hanpainted papers. I was so excited to try this because for once I had all of the necessary supplies right at home, and, it was something that my girls could partake in too. I didn't have any brown grocery bags so I used brown painter's paper; it comes in a big roll and you buy it in the paint department at the home improvement store, it makes great craft paper for the girls. I also used washable tempura kids paint intstead of acrylic craft paint. I wanted the paint to come out of my daughter's clothes...and hair, and hands. The colors came out great and every one looks fantastic! I'm so excited to do this again and experiment with different colors and textures, maybe even some stamps, I could go on and on...

your paper is fantastic! You can really do so much with that, espeacially when you are in need of a quick birthday or note card! I always seem to be out of notecards and end up fabricating my own...
