Origami Bracelet - Cel21 Blue

Somebody asked me what the “Cel” in the beginning of each order means – it’s actually short for “Celebrate” – things are not always so great and especially now, a lot of us are experiencing some challenges in life – in spite of that, I think we should find something to celebrate – life, friendship, love, colors – and I try to show that “celebration” through the bracelets I create. (What a sap!)

Origami Bracelets Using Book Cover Paper – Success!!!

I just love it when a plan comes together! Yes – it works. I received the art spray and began the next phase of my “experiment” – to see if it will work on the book cover paper that I am using for the new origami bracelets. I printed the design using regular ink cartridges (not the photo ink cartridge that I ordered) and treated the paper. After spraying it three times (just to be sure) I checked to see if the water will damage the design or the paper. What’s really cool is that the paper looks exactly like it should after being sprayed. The colors remained the same and it seemed like it was not sprayed with anything. Now, for the test – I dropped water on the paper, and yes, it did not go through – the water beaded – and after wiping off the water, the design and the paper remained the exact same way it was!

 Here is the image of two new designs using the “book cover” paper for the origami bracelets. I plan on using this paper for my other bracelet designs. The only difference is that this paper has a white background so I might have to change the background color for the other designs or just print it with a white background. More experiments to follow…
