Lately I've been dreaming about red japanese paper. I've been thinking about how well it would go in various pieces I'm working on...or may work on. I am quite frugal, so I don't like to just go out and buy things, but today was a sunny Friday afternoon and I just couldn't resist the temptation anymore. So off I went to my local art store, which shall remain nameless. They were all out of red japanese paper although they had every other colour under the sun. They were also out of the colours of speedball ink I needed and they were out of the size and kind of sketch book I like AND out of my favorite kind of markers; Faber Castell, which they aren't going to carry anymore! Well!!! Needless to say I came home empty handed. However, I did feel good that I hadn't spent any money! I have decided to make my own red decorative paper. It won't be Japanese, it will be CranberryCloudies. Here is a little idea I am working on. This is just a beginning. Hopefully soon I'll show you my beautiful cranberry papers!
