Amaryllis flower petals ( use almost dried up flowers) and hazel catkins tea left overnight. A cup full of hazel catkins add same of water leave to infuse. Brush camel hair add hazel catkins tea to paper add a layer of petals. Sprinkle some tea on petals. Add another copy paper page that has been brushed with the tea. Press slightly. Then roll up in a  tube of approx. 2" and leave on semi-warm heating radiator to dry slowly. When dry unroll carefully so as not to break paper.

9  Color swatches diy on white copy paper for painted papers. in Completed Projects by BelleBeryl on: April 10, 2018 03:17:52 AM
Color swatches on white copy paper for a sort of painted papers. Cut up regular kitchen paper towels into all sorts of shapes with a scissors to get same ones use 2 sheets stacked. Place copy paper flat on table put all the little pieces of kitchen towel on top or do one by one. With painting brush dip into water moisten paper then add some slightly diluted water color paint leave to airdry. When dry remove the small bits of dry colored kitchen paper bits. You can do a second run and get a very pale second print. See pictures.
I did a bit with a black lace cover to show effect you can get using as background paper. Second picture shows the little leftovers papers, static makes them cling to my printer with scan, but it is to show what they look like after first use.

10  WIP Isabel Clara Eugenia journal ( 2 pictures/questions ) in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by BelleBeryl on: March 27, 2018 04:05:10 AM
Bit of a story. The family was off to Italy last summer and since I can not travel anymore. I wanted to do one of the Italian princesses as a journal. Somehow late at night I switched pictures because when I went to look for texts quotes etc  is a Spanish princess/infanta. So here I present  Isabel Clara Eugenia daughter born 1566 daughter of Philip II of Spain. Her age on painting is 13. Painting mentions date 1579. 
 I had coffee dyed but papers went greyish I prefer tea color is softer. So I put it/her away for a while...My teen daughter was doing highschool homework  and it included Philip II  so I tell her he had a daughter. And showed her the journal...My teen DD says the kid looks way depressed. Everyone in paintings looks very serious in paintings of that era. Anyway trying to cheer things up a bit I decided to add beads, glass pearls. freshwater pearls and stick-on gems. I am thinking of a way to add some big freshwater pearls that stay upright on the edge of the cover.
I do not have glue gun. I only use glue stick or sew by hand. I tried a little but is what you see on spine top, was hand sewn on cover. I want the front fairly oval large freshwater pearls 9 mm to stay upright sort of freestanding/floating at the rim/edge The cover is cardboard with paper so not sturdy bit soft.Any tips suggestions?I tried sewing on white lace but pearl sags.
I am searching my stash, some red lace and some black lace which I seldom use, maybe add that too...
The freshwaterpearls are I think seconds by Shipwreck beads had them many years in my stash since they have some nicks/tiny damage, question is would acrylic paint tiny bits stick to freshwater pearls?
