Peace Dove Handmade Art Papers by Susan W. Showalter

I love making handmade paper and find the process very therapeutic! I usually make handmade art papers by recycling mostly organic materials such as dryer lint, used paper, spent flower  blossoms, stems, leaves, thread, natural fibers, junk mail, seeds, etc.   Each piece is unique and cannot be copied.  I make sheets of paper and vessels.  I do this usually outside on a sunny day while listening to birds singing as I work. Sometimes I enjoy myself so much that time seems to fly by and next thing I know I have stood making paper for six hours straight.  Sometimes I teach paper making classes...everyone who tries it loves it! Maybe you should try it sometime...

I hope you do!
