 Another new book, Brownies. This one is obviously a box, with gold duct tape on the edges. In person, the tape is very shiny and reflective.
The paper in this book is paste paper I made last year . I did some with wallpaper paste, paint and combing. And the more crinkled paper is made with gel medium and paint. Both are brown paper bags, recycled. The heavier texture is a grocery bag, the thinner, lighter ones are flat paper bags, like lunch bags.
This is all stuff that was lying around the house, waiting for inspiration. I don't know how well regular pens will show on this paper, or the previous book I made. But I think gel pens, especially white, will show up well. Or Sharpies are another option.
