Amongst the homemade papers i found these few little projects I had made using paper and some pressed items from my gardens. I think I will probably use them in my new FTB garden journal. They should add an interesting contrast to the other papers I will be using.
If you click on the picture it will get larger and you can see some of the details better. There are dried daisies, pansies and something else I don't remember. And a lot of the paper was made using inclusions of dried herbs from my garden.
An aside to this story:
One day a friend of mine and I decided to make some paper using cat tails and didn't realize we shouldn't "cook" the stalks in the house. (Cooking is how you can make them "mushy" enought to press into paper. My dear, normally patient, husband was not at all pleased! The smell was awful. Since I didn't have a good place to cook outside I sort of changed my way of making paper and didn't do so much anymore. Here is a picture of a bit of cat tail paper that I still have left.
It isn't very pretty is it. I suppose it would look interesting as a layer of a project. I may end of using it in the journal and tell this story again.
