Folding Paper

Folding paper as a design aid, how interesting!

My Mom is a master weaver, who continues to grow her skill in design and weaving. She is preparing for a design class and has been given folding paper as prep homework. After reading my Map Crazy post she asked if I'd any ideas on the subject. I have to say I had to think about it for a while, I couldn't quite see how folded paper could help with design for a tapestry until I added color to it in my mind.  Then I got excited ...water color on folded paper would enhance the folds and allow you to see the design. I had such fun playing with it. Perhaps it will inspire you in what ever it is you are doing.

 This one is my favorite, I crumbled the paper rather then fold it. Although it would not be easy to weave, it makes a nice watercolor!
