Bake the Paper Already!

Today I spent quite a bit of time out in the Texas summer heat, creating my beautiful earthy invitations! hehe!

I had found with Renni pads of water color paper for like $2.50 each and we thought we could totally do our own amazing custom paper! I wouldn't recommend doing it unless you don't mind a mess! It was a blast! I laid out to card board boxes (or you can use trash bags with one side torn open) that were flattened. Then took two pads of paper at a time and spread sheet by sheet by sheet down in a few rows. Any good spray bottle works well for this and makes the process quick and adds a variety in texture. Searching about my back yard I found some 
cool leave that I put down to have a stencil nature look. Spattered some gold paint, let it back in the scorching sun and-TADA!!!


So, what do ya think?
