Paper Weaving

hello again, I had a day off from my crafting and went fishing with Graham yesterday. I don't get to spend much time with him, as he works long hours and then on weekends he plays golf, umpires footy in the footy season and goes fishing on his boat. I had planned to go to a local market and a fair, but decided to go fishing, so up we got at 6.AM and went out on the boat. For the first time ever I was seasick and after feeding the fish 3 times, Graham decided to move to a more sheltered spot and that helped. He caught only 3 fish even though we could see them in the water. I had a big one on and was having trouble bringing it in and then it snapped the line. Oh well!!! Anyway it was nice to spend time with Graham, even if we didn't catch much. We got home around 3PM. I haven't been out for about 18 months and think it might be some time before I go again. He can take his mate next time.

Anyway back to card making. I saw this Christmas card on ESAD but cant find it again now to see who created it so if its your idea can you let me know. This card is made with vanilla base and Jolly Holiday DSP.  


  
The second card I made up using retired card and DSP. The base card is Soft Sky and the DSP is Afternoon Tea I think.

 

I'm having a quiet day at home today so hope to get a few posts ready for the week. Have a happy Sunday.

Wow, these are awesome, especially the christmas one. I had a go at this a while back and it was a disaster!!

That's a very interesting design. And funny thing is, just before searching your page, I looked at the paper-weaved bookmark my son made me and wondered how it would look on a card :)

Hi Andrea,

I think I've seen some paper-woven technique using a Judikins product... I think it's a clear double-sided sticky sheet.

Just went and had a look at my HDD where I have some of the TV Weekly instruction sheets. There's one about making mosaics using (surprise) Mosaic tape. You might find it on The Stamp Trap web site.

If you'd like me to send you the instructions, I can do that but it's a 2Mb file. Let me know.

Smiles,
Ros.
