Origami cranes and new bookmarks.

It's been almost a week since my last post about paper crafts: time to have a look at this week's creations!

First, I folded some cranes to color my flat a little. I'm not very good at origami paper folding. But I start to get pretty good at making cranes. There's now a rainbow of birds above my window.

Second, I increased my bookmarks inventory. There's a bunch of watercolored ones and some with zentangles. All available in my Etsy shop and eligible for the 20% off birthday sale with coupon code BIRTHDAY2013.

My favorite part when straining paper with soft pastels?

Even more fun when the mailman rings at the door before you had time to wash the colors off...

See you soon with the weekly progress on my Doctor Who scarf!
