Coloured homemade paper

Today after tidying up craft corner I decided to make homemade paper. Good weather for a fun activity. Earlier I had posted the technique of making paper from home. This time I would like to share with you how I make coloured paper. Try it & have fun! Enjoy the pictures!

Last week I got this orange roses for free from my favourite florist.
I always receive extra flowers every time I go to the shop. Lucky me!!!
I should consider working part-time & take the opportunity to learn flower arrangement ;p
I use these petals for this project.
I need used white paper. Tear into pieces.
I need small amount of coloured paper. I chose orange & red.
Dried rose petals.
Put the pieces of paper into the blender.
Pour water. Blend it!
Add coloured paper.
The amount of coloured paper I used. Blend it!
Look at the colour. It's pink!
Looked like strawberry smoothies!
Thought of doing something different!
Added orange peeled. Blend.
Add dried rose petals. Blend for a while. I want the effect on the paper.
In the other hand, prepare water in a basin. Add liquid starch.
Stir well. Pour blended paper.
Stir the mixture.
Use strainer to scoop out the mixture. Drain! Leave until no more dripping water.
Turn strainer backward to detach paper.
I can't wait; I used iron to half dry it.
You can use sponge to absorb excess water.
Personally I don't like using sponge.
Dry it under the sun.
Manage to produce 8 sheets of coloured homemade paper.
Ready to be used.

Look closely! Can you see the orange peeled?
