Handmade watercolor paper

Over the years I have bought handmade paper.  I have a very large collection that is waiting to be used.  I keep saving this paper thinking I'd improve my painting skills; but the real reason is I'm afraid I'd waste it painting bad pictures.  Once in a while I take out a sheet and paint on it and remember why I bought the paper in the first place.  Handmade paper just loves watercolor paint. 
So today I finally opened my journal with handmade paper and painted this small watercolor painting.  The size of this painting is 5 x 7.  I used Daniel Smith watercolors and a touch of Schmincke gouache.
