bead journal project for April


 I was really inspired by the idea of stitching on Japanese papers.  I love spirals so this paper was a natural choice.  I want to explore this idea further.

A very subtle effect and the paper idea is innovative.

Sooooo pretty, Angela! Just enough beadwork to complement the paper.

That is gorgeous! Those papers are beautiful.

Angela, what a great way to use your Japanese paper. I lived in Japan for three years and have collected some of that paper. I had used it for their festival dolls when I lived there, but wanted to do something else with what I brought home. Did you have to soften it in any way before beading? (moisture or crimping?) Lovely, Jude

Hi Jude
I couldn't find an email for you so I am answering your question here. I hope you find it! I did not soften this paper in any way. Another project I am working on I did crumple the paper and stitched on it. That works wonderfully well too.
