Handmade paper

A few weeks ago, I promised a friend 
I would paint her beloved dog.
I really wanted to give her something special
and I decided to do a linocut carving
and print on handmade paper.
Shredded paper ready for the crock pot.
I always add pigments to the pulp.
This time I didn't.  I wanted to see what color 
this batch of recycled paper would produce.

 The final paper was grayish with a touch of blue,
perfect for my artist's proof.
