I love paper too, but it does have its draw back...when I get all done I press it under heavy glass, with wax paper between the paper and glass. In a journal though, I think it adds interest that the paper shows the result of being altered by art.Love these images! Very painterly.
thank you Leslie ... I do always press my papers after the work , but at the moment they don't even stretch ! So I have to work with the waves and lakes :))
