Making art papers.....

Here's a great recipe for success!!

Join Joey at Keeton's Office and Art Supply here in Bradenton for an exhilarating morning of turning ordinary paper bags into ART!!!!  As always, click on each photo if you want a closer look.......

The ingredients.....

Some tools........

There were 10 of us in the workshop, and these photos represent just a few of the wonderful diversity of papers we created using brown paper grocery bags, acrylic paints, an assortment of foam stamps, and the best - spray webbing from Krylon in white, black, or silver (think it comes in gold, too)!!  I can't wait to set up my own play table at home and get started on more colorful creations!!!

Some of the photos are my papers, some are the WOW! inspirations of the other participants.

Raspberry soda anyone?

When the deep purple falls over shady garden walls.....

Hot, hot, HOT!!

Polka-dot Paradise

Luscious Lime Squeeze...

Metallic Mambo ;-)

Misty dreams....

These papers are quite sturdy and could be used for gift wrap, or for covering books or a small box, as backgrounds for collages or ATC's, or ..... Just about anything your inner artist can dream up!


  1. WOW!! I love these. I see that I am going to have to start reading my newsletter more closely, this looks like fun. Are you attending the Zentangle classes?

  2. Really gorgeous papers! What fun!... I think my friend Ruth and I will need a play date soon to colour up some waste paper...wheeeeeee

  3. You and your fellow participants have come up with a wonderful selection of finished papers. It also sounds like you had a great time making them. Must make a note re the Krylon spray webbing. Love the drizzle effect you've managed to achieve with that! Yummy.

  4. Wow, these are gorgeous--what an amazing assortment! Oh, the possibilities;)))

  5. these are superb !
    it would look great on my totally recycled paper mache bowls,lol...
