Projects – Deckled Edges

What is a Deckled Edge – The ragged or feathered edge of the paper as it comes from the papermaking machine is the deckled edge. Deckled edges look terrific on journal pages and paintings that will not be framed. If your paper does not have a deckled-edge it is very easy to create this look by folding and tearing. Heavier, layered papers work best with this technique. Thin paper will not show as much “feathering.”
