Trying Something New

Oh the things this world wide web brings into our crafting space. The other day ,somehow I got a youtube video of a  very talented person doing the  craziest thing.  She was making paper wrought iron. Well now…this looked very interesting. Could I?

After copying the design and printing it out I took off. Well first I had to cut all those tiny strips of back paper. You know…the kind used in Quilling. Only these were 1/8″ instead of 1/16″. Let me tell you …It is harder than it looks , but I will keep on until I get this worked out.

Needless to say I didn’t get the” big picture”. But what was fashioned into a card managed to cover the really rough spots.

Goodness..it does look better in person. My photo skills are lacking …maybe it is the light  or lack of it on this rain day. Any way It is fun to try new things and I will continue to give it a go. Isn’t there a saying about learning something new every day?

If you are here please comment yea or na or even just hello. That way I will know I’m not talking to my self. And do remember… This is the Lords day…REJOICE!

  1. I like the wrought iron look, Beverly… although it looks very tricky – intricate in fact!
    I also like your finished card – the colours, design and wording all go well together.

  2. Those are Beautiful too! You have been very busy! I don’t know if I could cut all those intricate pieces!

  3. You have more patience than I, my fabulous friend. I’d have given up on that before I’d even begun.
    I LOVE you finished card – the wrought iron really does look effective. Everything ‘fits’ together so well, and I think it’s because the wrought iron pulls everything together. Love it Bev. Well done you amazing thing!
