Curious about how this was done? I’ll explain next month, so be sure to sign up for email updates!



Here’s another example of what happens when you start with dark paper instead of white. This time I began with dark green Lama Li Lokta, a handmade paper from Nepal. While it has an interesting texture because of the fibers, I wanted more color variety. I used a crumpled piece of plastic to apply acrylic paint, making an irregular pattern of yellow greens and blue greens to contrast with the color of the paper.
