This piece is not even finished and I’ve learned a lot from it already.
First, don’t grab a piece of paper for the sake of using paper.
Next, have something special planned that really requires the use of paper.
And, for goodness sake, don’t use paper for something that would give the same effect with fabric!
The paper I used was thick and simply had a nice texture so I thought it would be fine. It is, but paper wasn’t needed! And if I really wanted to have a ‘paper moon’ then I should have used some of the beautiful specialty papers that I passed by. It wasn’t horribly difficult to use, but I did try to be careful not to fold or wrinkle it. I’m tempted to play with it a bit, though and maybe wet it and crinkle it to see what happens….hmmm….
And I think I would have liked using torn paper better than this nice, precisely cut circle. Next time.
I want to add more to this and finish it up but I’m torn as to what I want to add. I have a couple of ideas—wait–this might mean I need to do this more than once! That could happen, with variations, of course! Beads. It needs beads. Lots of beads. Yep!
