One of our favourite customers Michelle Molligan, from Social Butterfly, an invitation design company, was in the store showing us some of her lovely watercolours. We think they’re amazing, her colour sense is terrific and we wanted to show her work.
Michelle has done these watercolours on St. Armand Papers. We carry these papers in an assortment of sizes, colours and decorative textures. St. Armand (Montreal) beats their own pulp using mostly cotton from clothing manufacturers’ off cuts. Linen, flax straw and jute are also used in their papers. The pulp is internally sized so that the paper will not act as a blotter. These papers are a weight of 150 lb and are acid free. They’re great for printmaking, bookbinding, painting and watercolour. Scoring, embossing, die cutting and foil stamping also work well.
