I've been using found paper in my textile work for many years.  10 years...No....More...20 years.

I made an art piece in 2007 and the entire back was paper!

I have made my own paper adding thread between the pulp layers.

In medieval times, paper was made using rags.

To me, there is a connection between the paper and the textile.

I saw a wonderful exhibit at Artscape Youngplace recently- upstairs near the coffee shop.
(BTW, I am teaching at that Artscape location in February and March. Click here for details)

I love to see stitching in paper.

You need to know what you are sewing with paper because you can't undo it. You can't unpick it. It will leave a series of tiny holes in the paper!

Enjoy the images and image all that gorgeous paper and thread hanging above your head. Dreamy.
