The Joy of Paper

Do you have something that makes your heart go 'weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee', as if you were a young child flying through the air on a swing? That's the feeling I got as I opened this package full of paper.

I finally had a quiet moment to sit and open my order that arrived well over a week ago. It was full of beautiful handmade Twinrocker watercolour paper. Both Geninne and Diana had mentioned how much they liked it. I placed a small order a few months ago to give it a try and loved working with it. I did my painting of the French radish from my garden on it earlier this summer. I also did the painting of the serviceberry branch that was in my last post on Twinrocker paper.

This time, I ordered some round paper (oh, the delicious possibilities) and three different rectangular sizes. I love the feathered edges.

I am wearing my new copper ginkgo ring. It just arrived yesterday. I had forgotten that I had birthday money to spend (my birthday was way back in July). That's even better than finding some change in a jacket pocket. I wear it the opposite way to how the Tattooed Tinker model wears it in the photo and absolutely adore it. And I still have some money left over. :)
Here's a closer look at the ring. Excuse my non-model's hands. :)
If you have an artist on your Christmas gift list, beautiful paper is certainly a lovely idea. You can check out the inventory offered by Twinrocker here.
