I have collected old (VERY OLD) paper
for almost 25 years.
I love the worn, torn... yellowed,
I have started using the ORIGINAL papers
to make one of a kind mixed media designs.
This beautiful black and white illustration
is from an 1893 publication...
I have tried all types of copies of these rare images
and they seem to lose their charm when applied.
Either the paper is too thick, too shiny or wrinkles.
I will try to have high quality scans and copies
made of the finished designs...
Maybe that will be a successful way to save
a much treasured image!
I'm so excited to begin sharing these rare pieces!
Hope your day is wonderful~
