This past Monday, we had our monthly meeting of Fiber Junkies - Six "fiber loving" gals who get together to play and learn from each other. Carol Sloan, who is a wonderful mixed media artist led the meeting and shared her many techniques for paper painting. Needless to say, we had a blast and our minds were spinning with ideas for making beautiful paper. Carol also makes interesting journals out of these papers, but more on that later. This is our group (minus me, the photographer) left to right - Nancy, Patsy and Carol... Val and Mary.
And here are some of the beautiful papers that Carol brought to share for inspiration.
Carol uses a wonderful variety of techniques and materials to create these works of art.
This one was gorgeous and a mystery as to how she got the flowers on there.
This might be my favorite (below) with the cheesecloth!
Thanks Carol for such a wonderful and inspiring day!
