I can't remember when was the last time I did a layout, at least two years I guess. My focus was the origami piece with my 2016 resolutions and not very much on the design itself, even though I enjoyed adding textures and colors.
I have hard times following instructions with origami but I love it so when I saw this " Christmas wreath" I was determined to do it and hide in the pinwheel form my thoughts.
I used a Paris napkin

This is the original origami wreath where I wrote my resolutions
A little addictive....painting fabric? yes, sewing? yes creating anything?? yes!! Oh well, I felt I needed a bigger organizer so I could place one into the other plus my journal and bigger pads of papers and here it is. I changed the motifs of course, (this time I did use fabric paint) and the measurements, the rest is the same as the smaller one.
This is the inside with the smaller organizer full of stuff plus my Dylusions Journal
I love to paint all sort of papers to make collages, envelopes or wrapping gifts with them. In this case, I started with a 12" x 12" deli paper and a brayer. As I liked the colors, I painted one more, well....three more.
The next morning I received a package with stencils I ordered to make medallions (still out of the box), so I glued these four papers together and painted in the center. After that I felt I needed to do some more so I stitched around the circles and also added a few rows of gold thread.
