I have to admit, I have an addiction to the amazing papers created by Authentique Paper! I stumbled across this line of paper while teaching workshops at a scrapbooking store, and fell in love with printed designs on the paper. But what really hooked me about the paper lines that they produce is the dense thickness of the paper and the beautiful textured finish that lends this paper beautifully for creating books, collages, and other mixed media projects.
At the next CHA (now AFCI) Show, I found the Authentique Paper booth and introduced myself to Sam and Brett, the owners of Authentique Paper. Yes, I was like a teenager meeting their pop icon at a concert – but an instant friendship instantly occurred. Soon following the show, I was told (not invited LOL) to join their Design Team which I have been a part of ever since. Although my style and art has evolved over the years more into the realm of fine arts vs. scrapbooking and paper arts, I still use Authentique Papers as my staple for using papers in projects.
The Authentique Gallery shares with you just some of the projects and layouts that I’ve created using Authentique Papers over the years, with some of the images linking to project pages with full tutorials and detailed pictures and instructions about their construction.
