Bah! Humbug! Challenge 36 --- Paper Weaving

Yet again the ladies at Bah! Humbug! present an opportunity to stretch our creativity! The theme this week is "Paper Piecing" so I chose Iris Folding as my interpretation.  This technique has been around for a long time but I just never sat down to tackle it until now. 

It's kind of risky to try a new technique while I am honored to be the Guest Designer at Humbug Hall this month.  I'm hoping that this first attempt doesn't land me in the moat!  Actually, no worries there.  Ann and Max are the most gracious crafters and LOVE to see everyone's creativity. So, jump on in --- not into the moat! --- and try out your paper weaving technique! You will definitely be rewarded with comments and kudos! Just leave a comment at Bah! Humbug! with a link to your post
The deadline for this challenge is
12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 15th September 2011
We'll be around to visit and soak in all the inspiration from your projects!  Have a wonderful week and --- HAPPY CRAFTING!

Hi Barb ... believe me you wouldn't wanna be chucked in the moat, dread to think what might be lurking in there lol! ... but no danger of that with this beautiful submission to our gallery. So pleased this week's challenge prompted you to attempt a new technique and you have mastered it perfectly in my humble Humbugger opinion. Love the combination of textured and patterned papers which work really well together.
