What I am going to do with my homemade paper you ask?

I've actually collected some sunflower petals from the sunflowers that hang over our back fence.

Since they were the inspiration for the sunflower paintings... what I am imagining is some paper with dried sunflower petals in it and a small watercolour sunflower painting set in there somehow.

I figured the wet paper and watercolour would make an interesting mix. Still to get ol choppy up and running - well, I know it works. I plugged it in to make sure. But I need to get a little more stuff together to make the paper. Like a big trough or bucket to put the pulp in. For that, I'm thinking a rubber maid container. Unfortunately, I'm using all of the ones at my house... so I'll have to get one next time I'm out and about. But I've been having way too much fun going for coffee with my mummy friends. Very funny bunch of women. Of course, I'm not getting a thing accomplished. MMM, this comment should really be another blog post.. might just cut and paste that and do just that. !! and add some photos of my sunflower petals...


nighty night.
