Painting paper

I have in mind a fabric and paper journal so I have been painting paper to use as backgtounds. I now have multi coloured fingers from the ko-in-nor paints or dyes or whatever they are.
Some were using those and some regular paints and some using acrylic inks, Some are sprayed as well, everything is grist to my mill at the moment and they all have different qualities.
I like this corner of my sun room and the clothes horse is a useful place to dry papers as well as clothes.
Not much else done today apart from shopping etc, I did cut out the stencil for the poppy heads.
From hot and windy to cold but dry, we are well into silage making at the moment, much too early. Perhaps we will get lovely rain in October.

You've inspired me to try my hand at making some lovely painted papers!

We are still silage making here in the UK - I would guess it is not often that our crops overlap like this - something to do with the weather this year I guess.
