Here are the steps to make this card:
I started by quickly painting two pieces of watercolor paper. One paper using Blicks Artist Acrylic in Green Light Permanent.
The other piece of paper was painted with Blicks Artist Acrylic Emerald Green. I like the washy look of both pieces of paper.
By the way, I both brands of acrylic paint gives good results. I wanted two different color greens and these paints are the ones I had on hand in my stash.
After the paper had dried, I put each piece face down on my cutting board. You could put the paper face up but I wanted to hold each piece in place with blue tape and didn't want to risk the tape pulling any of the paint off the paper. Then I cut the papers in strips.
The next step is to weave the weft into the warp. This time around I started up the top and weaved down horizontally. With the other two paper weaving projects, one was woven right to left (click here) and the other one was woven from the middle out (click here).
After I finished weaving, I put a light coat of matte medium on the back to adhere the strips together before removing it from the cutting board.
The finished woven paper.
