I am a very lucky lady in that people often give me things for free. Recently I received a sweet gift of handmade paper from Ashley Readings! I will be working through it over the next few months. The paper I used for these drawings is a kozo-type affair but I also have chunky colourful pieces which I will probably use for book covers. I wanted to show the beautiful texture and transparency of these pieces so I scanned them on a kraft paper background.
