Handmade Mixed Media Paper by Sustainable Paper + Craft This versatile paper is made from the perfect blend of abaca fibers and cotton rag. Abaca makes hard, resilient, and durable paper. Cotton adds bulk, thickness and softness. Together they create the perfect mixed media paper for fine artists. It has feathery deckle edges and a homogeneous surface with no visible fibers. The texture is a light fine grain with smooth surface. This mixed media paper will work well for all fine art media - draw with pencils, charcoal, conte, pastel, or paint with acrylic, watercolor, ink, and gouache. Includes 5 sheets of 4" x 5.5" handmade paper. About the Maker Kansas City, Missouri Kelsey Pike is a papermaker, printmaker, and art teacher. She creates fine handmade papers and custom, hand-carved rubber stamps. She has been in love with the obscure and tedious art form of hand papermaking since she first tried it in art school, at the Kansas City Art Institute, in 2009. Turning things like rags and raw plant fibers into paper is a kind of magic! She loves the sound of the water, the repetitive motions, the solitude – they put her in a meditative space. Her favorite part is peeling the dried sheets and examining them – such a sense of accomplishment. She hopes that her paper inspires others to make beautiful things with it.

May this shop grow strong, and provide for many women.

STORY

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD

I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
