Brown Waxed Paper - Accordion Journal

Accordion Journal

This past fall I was sent a round robin journal wrapped in a brown waxed paper, paper I had never seen before.  Right away I was fascinated by its heavy amazing slick surface.  I needed to know where one could purchase it and what kind of characteristic it had.  Could it adhere to anything and could it hold a folded shape?  I experimented and found it quite durable.  Matte medium and PVA liked this paper.

My next idea was to use it create an accordion journal.  I painted on the paper and I cut holes in it.  I even sewed stitches in it which you will see very soon.  I have begun a working affair with this paper. So far I have not found any limitations.
