Mulberry Paper

Mulberry paper is a light-weight, semi-transparent type of handmade style paper.  It used to be quite popular in scrapbooking and has fazed out although there’s no reason why you can’t still use it.  I found this page from the past with mulberry paper and it also includes a tag (yesterday’s topic).  Mulberry paper can be used as a background, as an embellishment, or (my favorite) as a frame.  You can cut it for a straight edge, or you can wet it with a waterbrush or paintbrush and then tear it for a unique look.
