Paper And Its Use In The World Of Creativeness


A few years ago I would never think that paper will play such an important role in my life. It sound trivial, or even comic, but that's the truth. 

The initial idea to create consisted in compacting and boiling the fibres of various plants, and once they dried, it was ready to use.  The biggest difference between the current paper and the papirus of that time lies in the production process. Currently, paper is created in result of chemical and mechanical wood processing, and the quality of paper depends on raw materials chosen for its creation.
I think that the history of paper creation and the process of its improvement is very fascinating. 

Nowadays, we can find surprising paper creations that I would like to present in this post. 

DECOUPAGE PAPER
DECORATIVE PAPER  is my basic work tool and during a few years of creative work I have come across paper with various hardness, transparency, and even a  fibrous paper, so called RICE. Currently we can find on the market the paper of the biggest producers such as 'To Do', 'Stamperia', 'Decomania' or 'Finmark'. In my works, besides a ready-made paper, I also print my own patterns or motives and each of them is specially protected.  

Browsing through Pinterest, my favourite source of information from the world of creativeness, I came across the wonderful paper creations and decided to create a new board called ' Dry Flowers And Paper Arrangements' devoted to such beauties.

Here is some very unique paper creations.
