Christmas Card - Iris Folding
Carole, from Art Plus, got me curious about iris folding with the beautiful work she does with it. So, when I happened upon a pattern and some basic instructions, I decided to try it. This little bell still isn't finished as I don't have the supplies that most paper artists use. The paper I used for this is actually just some Christmas gift wrap that caught my eye when I got it out of storage. The examples I've seen of various iris folded cards use 3 or more colors/patterns for the different areas of the design. As I said, I didn't have any specialty papers on hand and it's really too far to go to get anything decent. However, I really enjoyed doing this and will keep my eyes open for papers I can use in future projects.
Now, on to the next dog portrait!
