I keep a box in my studio, where I drop every piece of used paper that passes through my hands (except that destined for the garbage). Mostly, I keep old lists, old emails or Internet information I may have printed out, etc. There are a lot of quilt show entry forms, prospectus, etc. . . . . even a few rejection letters that end up in this box.
I decided to try cutting them up into quarters, then sewing them back together randomly. This created a very large sheet of paper for me to work with.
Kind of fun.
I made it the size of my print table, since this space is already protected and therefore a safe place for me to splash some old MX dye and watercolors around.
I really like the look so far.
