NEW Handpainted Paper Packs for Sale

My background paper obsession is still going strong. It's just so much fun to get out the paper and paints and stamps and texture-making do-dads and go to town.

Here are the full sheets of the papers I've made in the past week, including many painted onto antique encyclopedia pages. (Please note: the colors will appear different on different monitors. On mine, they are a bit washed out.)

As before, I'll sell packages of at least 10 pieces about 5 x 5 inches in size for $8. I'll accept payment via PayPal or money order. One person sent me cash last time and that worked out fine, but it's a bit risky. The first person to order will also get a little extra surprise (hint: if you look at my recent blog entries, you'll have a clue). I have 13 packages for sale this time. Last time I had ten and they all sold out within a week!

This second batch of packages will include a mixture of these new papers and some of the papers left from my previous packs. See that post here.

Here are the contents of a sample pack (you will receive different papers, but I will include an assortment of colors):

If you'd like to order a pack, just e-mail me at
