Momigami

This weeks Stictch club Challenge used Momigami (a Japanese word meaning crumpled and paper) with workshop leader Cas Holmes. Like me Cas works with a lot of recycled/refound materials and this week she is working with momigami. Any paper can be used but that with long fibres works best. it is rolled and crumpled in the hand sometimes with a little bit of oil put on the hand if it is drying out too much from the paper crumpling. I used some small pieces of gift wrap above and I have put the original paper and the final crumpled paper next to each other so you can see the difference that breaking up the fibres and how the light catches the paper makes them look. These will now be worked into a small landscape piece
