Today I'm beginning a new blog about my interest in paper arts.
For years, I've worked exclusively in fabric, but, with the recent wave of interest in scrapbooking, I couldn't help but notice all those enticing, printed papers out there in the craft stores! I did start a scrapbook at one point, but soon lost interest in that as I realized the potential of using decorative paper just as I would use fabric in applique pictures. So I began collecting paper and now have an absurdly large stash of both paper and fabric (along with, of course - ribbons, laces, embellishments, etc.)!! I've also noticed some amazing paper artists on the web, whose work I hope to show here.
I'm kicking things off with this little bird, made with a paper outline and a paper doily. A couple of weeks ago I did a lace bird tutorial on my other blog, Fabric Art & Crafts, which you can find here. The bird can be made with either fabric lace or a paper doily.
Time will tell whether I can keep up with two blogs, but for now - thanks for stopping by!
