A Loveletter, The Paper Love Blog Hop

As an Artist, paper lets my heart skip a beat.
I really love paper.
The white, thick and smooth.
The thin, transparent and milky.
The natural, selfmade and structured.

Paper is what can hold stories. In form of books, photographs and art.
Blank paper gives us space to create, whatever we want.
We can bring our thoughts out of our mind and into reality, we can save the moment with a photograph on paper we treasure and to express how we feel with colors.

Writing is such a powerful thing, it can help us to be heard. We can use journalling to clean up our head and we can use it to write our future, to make plans and goals. To attract what we want, to make our visions become a reality.

I loved my grandfather, when I was little I was a lot around him. He was a photographer and crafter. I treasure his photographs, they carry a breeze of the past and let me understand his world he lived in.

If we let go of pressure, tension and all kind of selfdoubts and just let flow the colors, lines and structures we can create on paper, this strong medium is the essential for expression.

I love books. Pages and pages of wisdom and stories. Reading a book is like diving into another world and timetravelling. I love stories, and everyone of us has our very unique and beautiful story to share. We all are unique and we all can take a blank sheet of paper and create with it whatever fits best for us.
