Japanese washi papers

Until recently I have never been attracted to washi papers... that is until you see them in real life. Just recently I received a beautiful card and package from Carolyn who I met via Etsy. And she sent me some beautiful washi papers and I couldn't wait to try a card with them.

So here is my first try. I think they lend themselves well to the grid style.

In real life it has gold shimmers on the paper.

And this is Carolyn's card that so inspired me. It also shimmers more in real life.

Thanks for stopping by!

Revisiting a scrapling

I feel so bad that I haven't visited my favorite blogs lately. I have been so preoccupied. Yesterday my beautiful chicken, Lilly, got killed by a fox. The other two chickens are in shock and have only started eating and moving about again late this afternoon. I know it's only a chicken but it has a character and you get used to seeing them every day etc.

Anyway, I am going to share a little scrapling I made this afternoon. It is 4,5 by 1,5 inches, so very small!

It is a revisit of this one here:
