Kraft-Tex Paper Tutorial by Julie Komenda

Recently Julie Komenda sent me a message showing some of her creations using Nunn Design Findings and a product called kraft tex™ paper. I wasn’t familiar with kraft tex™ paper, so Julie spent some time educating me.


What is kraft-tex™ Paper

“kraft-tex™ is a kraft paper fabric that comes in sheets or on a roll. You can distress it, wash it, sew, emboss, dye- you name it! It is available in an assortment of colors.”

Julie’s creative play was very inspiring so I ventured over to her blog to read more. When I arrived on Julie’s site, I was greeted with this message:

“This is Julie Komenda coming to you from the interweb.
If you have made it this far you might be wondering why I decided to have a website.
I meet a lot of people that start conversations with “I’m not an artist…” at which point I stop them and explain that of course you are. When did you stop being one? We get rusty if we don’t practice. This website is about reminding you that you are an artist because it is in your DNA, which is short for deoxyribonucleic acid and that is as close to Rocket Science as I will get. Well, maybe…
GET YOUR CRAYONS OUT NOW.
PUT SOME MUSIC ON.
BE YOURSELF.
HAVE FUN.
SAVE THE WORLD.”

I absolutely loved her line: “When did you stop being one?”
