About this Blog

Doing an illustration for my other blog, I had a very frustrating experience with new quality drawing paper which got me thinking and indeed resulted in a flood of ideas, what can be done with the 99 sheets of paper that are still left from the block. So I decided to install a whole new blog to show you the results. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I like to create the projects.

The sheets of paper I am working with are size A4 (21 x 29.7 mm), 185 g/m².

Easter postcard (5)

Here comes a further variation of the woven Easter egg postcard. It is so much fun to come up with ideas for weaving that I did this last woven egg with sequins added. This is for those of you who like it a bit more glamorous.

Easter Postcard with Woven Egg and sequins

Material and instruction like in Easter postcard No. 3. You also need some sequins fitting your chosen colour scheme. Proceed just as in postcard no. 3, but weave more loosely. After finishing the weaving, add the sequins. I made groups of three and spread them evenly over the egg.

All these variations are meant to show that you can let your imagination run free and come up with the most beautiful ideas yourself. Have fun!

Easter Postcard (4)

This Easter postcard project varies the theme and technique of Easter Postcard No. 3. It is woven again, but more colourful as you can see. I sort of liked the idea to wrap it in a warm and cosy plaid, especially as it's extremaly cold outside with biting wind and not nearly feeling like spring or Easter.

Materials and instruction see Easter Postcard No. 3, only add some more colours and weave more loosely so you can see the warp threads, too.
