I love paper! No, not the junk that lands in my mailbox… Nor, the papers I push around on my desk at work! Sigh…
I’m talking about decorative paper that is beautiful to see and touch and can add something unique to my artwork.
I decided to learn more about paper so I signed up to take a 6-week online class on Paper Weaving with Helen Hiebert. I learned about Helen’s class from Uppercase Magazine. Helen has an awesome blog with free tutorials, called The Sunday Paper; HelenHiebertStudio.com/blog
I finally finished the first lesson of four notecards:
I enjoyed learning these techniques. I like the curvy designs best, (the yellow and blue backgrounds). I will tell you the names of these papers in my next paper weaving post…
Paper weaving takes time, practice and patience I learned. Part of the technique is learning how to cut the papers. Although my cuts are not exacto, I am pleased with my results.
