Paper craft/journals

I create art journals in a variety of styles. Bright, colorful, vintage, fun, and funky. What makes my journals unique is the hand dyed, hand designed paper. I use coffee, and yes…you can get a caffeine buzz! I have heard that coffee absorbs faster through the skin than if you drink it. I’m not sure if this is true but I do know it’s not a good idea to dye coffee paper before bedtime! I found that out the first time I did it. I also use koolaid, spray inks, and acrylic paint. Besides these mediums my journals include unusual paper findings from estate sales, craft paper, old book pages, playing cards, doilies, sheet music, popcorn bags, tracing paper, handmade envelopes, altered paper clips and some rubber stamping.
