Spice up your papercrafts with these unique paper folding techniques! The blank page is an empty vessel, a piece of paper that we can project our creativity, thoughts, and dreams onto. With this book, the blank page is used creatively, but not as a surface onto which words or drawings will be synthesized. The paper itself is the message. Dive into the art of paper with author Catherine Mace's Paper Play. Treat yourself to a fabulous time with silk-embedded papers from India, Florentine prints from Italy, metallic patterns from Japan, and much more. Here is an opportunity to experiment and expand your paper crafting skills. Have you tried hand-dyeing your own paper? There's so much to learn here, and so much to do! Much like the frame that holds the painting, the paper that contains the words is often taken for granted in its potential to be a medium for art. By taking advantage of the paper's ability to retain its folds, manipulations, and disruptions, you can create amazing, three-dimensional shapes and figures that will instantly gain admiration. Catherine Mace takes the reader through step-by-step guides that demonstrate how to create with the humble material of paper. The blank page has a sturdiness to it that gives it long-lasting durability. This quality allows for paper to be used for a variety of crafts and projects. By starting with a blank slate--literally--the reader will create beautiful pieces that are satisfying to the eye and also have function. Craft wallets, folders, necklaces, and much more. Catherine demonstrates the potential of this art when the artist expands to different colored and textured paper. Borrowing from folding patterns used in origami, she shows how easy it can be to create a higher purpose for a material that is usually discarded all too quickly. Don't fold on this opportunity! The world is at your fingertips when you harness the power to change the shape and appearance of paper. With the help of Catherine's expert advice, this modest resource goes from being an object upon which we draw and write to being the subject of the art itself. Working with paper, scissors, punches, and adhesives brings back such comfortable memories for all of us. Get inspired again and indulge in the creativity and memories of Paper Play!
