I thought about having a contest to see if anyone could indenify what was in the photo. These are very small dots of paper created while drilling paper with a drill press with a hollow point bit. The holes are made in the paper so it can be put into a ring binder. Different color paper and build up within the bit create the rings of color. The small dots on the paper are pixels where the paper has been printed with a design.
