what a fun play I had yesterday using water colour paper …. I used bits and pieces from the garden marigold petals, bougainvillaea flowers, fern, pear leaf, purple saliva and kangaroo paw I am astounded at some wonderful colour

So Wen did you wet them and then squash them? I haven’t played with paper.

Yes I soaked the paper ( water colour grade) first, two of the sheets are folded into the little book thingy we did with India in 2012 and I placed a plain sheet in between so the print would be different on each page, boiled an hour or so as per bundles!!
