Rolled paper beads- I love them. ALL kinds of them- magazine, newspaper, junk mail- any kind.
These were made with printer paper- I have a box of printer paper that has the holes along the sides, that you tear away after printing.
When on a car trip with DH driving, I like to have something to keep my hands busy.
Rolling paper beads works.
After painting them with gesso, some were watercoloured, and the rest had tiny torn strips of painted tissue paper glued on. Once dry, I brushed on pearl paint. All the beads were given a coat of Crystal Effects.
I love that they are irregular and imperfect.
Makes them more fun!
Thanks for looking today.
