painted papers - part 3

My mailbox holds new delights every single day.

Here are three papers from Arlyn.  This first one has crushed sea shells in one of the circles - how cool is that?



These next six papers are from Carroll,
but first check out the amazing envelope in which they arrived!

 






Each of Ellen's gelatin print "blots" features one of her signature haikus on the back.  
Bonus for the lucky recipient!



Here are seven lusciously layered papers from Laurie:







And seven from Mandy, including some of the marbled papers we made together recently:







Jan's papers are done on a wonderfully smooth/slick paper (is it photo paper?) and have an amazing glossy surface.



What will you do with the papers you receive?
Will you use them in an art journal?  Or cut them into postcard backgrounds?  Or tear them into small collage pieces?  Or fold them into an envelope?
There are so many possibilities!
If you make something with any of your swap papers, take a picture of it and add it to the MMSA flickr group (or email it to me).
We'd love to see how you used what you received.
