paper fabulousness


there's lots of fabulous paper out there (and one peek into my stash would reveal that i probably own at least two sheets of each of it!).  but sometimes a sheet of really, really fabulous paper falls in your lap, and you want to do something really, really fabulous with it.....like showcase all it's fabulousness on the covers of an art journal.


but this isn't just any fabulous paper.......
it's paper that was lovingly and skillfully stenciled by my dear fabulous friend and partner-in-art-crimes martha lever.....



and not only is this paper fabulous, 
it's also artsy, genuine, one-of-a-kind, colorful, unique, exceptional,  primo, special, vibrant, one and only, zesty, sparkling,  creative, energetic, and extremely imaginative......much like the fabulous martha-artist herself!

see more of martha's beautiful artwork here!
and you can read more information about this art journal here in my etsy shop

Martha Lever said...

Oh Lori it really is beautiful! I am so happy that you made the paper into one of your fabulous journals! Love it!!!

I did 16 envelopes today and I am getting faster but I spilled a whole bottle of Noodler's Bulletproof ink all over the floor and on my shoes and just missed Bucky. It was terrible! But after 2 rolles of paper towel---all was well.

Martha Lever said...

rolles??? --> rolls---I guess there was a reason I was the first to sit down on the spelling bees in the 3rd grade.
