Handmade Tissue Paper and Resin



 These bezels look like they have some truly organic paintings trapped in resin.
You won't believe how simple it is to make something this beautiful.

I received some handmade tissue paper from Hilary Stephens.  I was so surprised to see these samples in my last box from Hilary that I wanted to create something special with them.


 I learned many years ago to look for "the sweet spot" in any sort of a collage or layered paper sample.  These two tiny sections appealed to me for their colour palette and I cut them out and glued them into the bezel.  No other embellishment was needed!  All I did was pour in Envirotex Lite.


I turned one of the cured bezels into this very pretty bracelet.  If you would like to learn more about how I made the bracelet there is a post today on the John Bead blog explaining the kumihimo braid I colour matched my bezel too.

Really love this. The handmade paper is so unusual, and you've paired it beautifully with the bezel and braid. The resin makes it a practical piece to wear. Would love to see more along this line.

Do you know where this gorgeous paper could be purchased?

Sorry Nancy, they were hand made by Hilary for her own projects.
