There is a really wonderful tutorial on making background papers by Marilyn Rock that you can find here (part 1) and here (part 2). It's done on deli paper and I absolutely love the finished product. The paper is light weight and adheres to EVERYTHING just beautifully. The paper below will be cut up and the swirls that I drew on it will be used for borders.
This paper will be used strictly as background paper to projects. I always make three of each color combination, so I will keep one the original size and maybe journal on it.
Go check out the tutorial and let me know what you think. Better yet, email me when you make something!
