I was experimenting with a technique for a swap. We had to oil some copy paper. I used an eco friendly baby oil.
I did try this years ago as it looks like faux parchment.
I stamped it first with memento London Fog ink. The idea is to add paint and crumple, oil again and crumple, oil the reverse and crumple. The result is that you send up with very soft paper that feels like fabric. It can be stitched if you so desire. Below are a couple of samples I played about with. So scroll down to the messy desk where I work in about 6 inches of space then hop over to Julia's and snoop over 140 desks if you have time.
