Create a fun paper weave with old book paper and Gelatos® Colors!
Have you tried incorporating a paper weave on your creative projects? It’s a great way to use up paper scraps and add that special touch to your project.
I started with some old paper which I gessoed and colored with Gelatos® Colors (Pistachio, Lime, Spearmint), then cut into strips.
Start weaving the strips, closing the gaps to keep the weave tight. Glue the completed weft down on a scrap paper and cut to size. Add Golden glass bead medium for a sparkle.
Add paper doiley and patterned papers.
