“Do you have your phone & computer set to UK English?, me too…”

-March Meet the Maker-

So far this March Ive been participating in March Meet the Maker, founded by Johanna Hawker on Instagram at some point in the past… seemed like a fun way to share a few behind the scenes things with all of my peeps and I always miss it until mid-month, so yay!

Supplies! I have too many, as noted in previous post, i just started getting rid of supplies I thought I would use, but just haven’t and they are weighing me down! Blah!

ANY-hooooo

Paper…

Ohhhh the paper! All of these can be found with a simple google search. Khadi is only available via certain sellers.

So many kinds I really love. Top of mind and go to are:

1. L’Aquarelle Canson Héritage - Ive only tried the 300 lb and it is like velvet. Such a beautiful texture! Definitely give it a try

2. Arches Cold Press any weight … nuff said. This paper is always my go to, its tough and I can make changes easily, has wonderful tooth and just an all around great paper.

3. Khadi Paper: this paper is handmade in India and it is so beautiful!

4. Shizen - beautiful textured paper
