My husband often wonders what I do all day so just had to illustrate with Miss Fritzie >^..^<
Actually I have been producing while Miss Fritzie is on inspection detail. I decided to do some experimenting with folding paper. I have always been facinated with origami. Even as a kid, I remember getting a kit for Christmas one time and spending hours trying to make them. The one that I am showing here is actually a spin on those old fashioned coin purses I use to see. I remember my grandpa even having one. I made this one a lot larger. Size wise, the base could fit a CD in it which is what I had intended it for as a gift package for someone when I made it. Once I got the size I wanted, I drew it out on butcher paper. I covered the butcher paper in a combination of matte medium and torn issue paper.(You could also do this with a half and half water to elmers white school glue mixture) I let the layers dry and then turned it over and painted the inside with an acrylic paint and sponge brush. I also used a rubber stamp and stamped dragonflies all over it and put a sealer on it of gloss mod podge. Then the fun begins in folding it. For fun, I auditoned a clay face on it. I even thought that I would be able to do this with felt, but unfortunately I felt it wasn't stiff enough. Perhaps 2 fabrics with Steam A Seam or other bonding agent would work better. I will have to do that for the next ones that I do. I will report back of my findings later.
