VIDEO: Using Rice Paper on Cards - How It's Different from Patterned Paper

I have inadvertently kept a little bit of a secret for a while, but only because I don't really show my art journaling publicly very much, and that secret is rice paper.

I love it. It's so very different from patterned paper, and I'll show you why in a video below. If you are as old as me, and remember mulberry paper, rice paper is like an evolved version of that - more color, more pizazz, but a lot of the same benefits.

Today, I'm doing the tutorial at Splitcoast with it, and I think you'll find it as fun as I do. 

I won't spoil the surprise of how I did this first card, but the rice paper is this beautiful, brightly colored assortment. The rest will have to remain a mystery until you watch. The sentiment, so very me, is from here

I got tricksy with the second sample - using a rice paper from the same assortment, but adding this embossing folder. You'll see two ways to accent the texture in the video.

Finally - I layered two rice papers - this black and white one and the pretty colorful one to show you how transparent they can be, which is one of my favorite things.

Here's the video:

Hope you love it as much as I do!

  1. I have some rice paper a friend gave me and wasn't sure what to do with it. This tutorial is perfectly timed! Thanks for this.
