This page is a place for me to stash information regarding projects that I find interesting and want to take note of for the future.

I've been playing around with painting tissue paper to use for collaged medallions for necklaces and possibly to use to make paper beads.  I've had fun just messing around and playing with colors that I like, but I wanted to explore what others are doing and see what I might be inspired to try.

Tissue Paper Watercolor Textures

This looks like a cool technique that I might want to try in the future.  I'd have to get some new watercolors and some watercolor paper, but it sure looks like fun.

The tutorial is good and looks easy to follow.

This is just one example of the beautiful work you can see at Fine Art America.

Tissue Paper Background Tutorial

I found this tutorial as well and while the tissue paper design isn't the main design, it provides a beautiful background that would be great to use with cards or other projects.  

While I don't have all the supplies for this technique, I can probably use many of my rubber stamping supplies.  I also like the use of recycled items in this project:  cardboard, tissue paper, etc.

Cozy Felted Sweater Blanket
Made by Kris from Resweater
Inspirational project found on iHanna's Blog.  Festive and fun journal page.  I want to check out more entries in her journal to see what else I can use for inspiration.

Check out her tutorial on making paper cloth.  That one I have to try!

While reading about felting sweaters and reusing them, I came across the idea of making a blanket out of them. What a cool idea!  I know that I don't sew, but maybe I could get someone to put it together for me once I gathered all of the materials and cut out the squares.

I can just imagine how cuddly, warm and cozy this would be!

Absolutely Gorgeous Felted Sweater Blanket

You really need to check out Joanie's blog to see all of the other beautiful blankets and things that she makes from recycled wool.  I only wish that I could ever make something so lovely as this amazing blanket.
