The fern challenge: fern paper

Fern paper is done. This is the fifth position on my list. We had such a nice time making it, homemade (recycled) paper was something completely new to us. (Maybe that's why we wanted to try making it, we like collecting new experiences!) Maybe some day I'll post a paper 'how to'.

At the beginning I wanted the fern frond to be inside the sheet. But after the paper dried I noticed that it came off a little. I decided to unstick it and the result was better that I could imagine. The print was very sharp. You probably can't see it in the picture of the whole sheet, but look at these detailed ones!

I used old paper, so the ivory colour is completely natural.

Have a beautiful day!
