I have grown quite passsionate about paper - in particular book paper. I have learnt that each page has a grain, some pages are firm and flexible, while others are fragile and brittle and I am fascinated by the way books age from white to deep cream.
We have started to dye book paper with red ink. These variations in colour have made such beautiful results. Same ink bath - different book pages- many delightful shades :-)
We have made some large proteas from this paper and are busy with a batch of pink buttonhole proteas at the moment too!
