[Focus on Life Week 31] Hues of Blues

Hi!  It's Week 31 over at Ms. Sally Russick's Focus on Life and the prompt for this week was:
"Hues of Blues."


Let me share with you these special Origami Papers.  I love the rich, vibrant and assorted hues of blues!  these would look really good in origami projects, or as a pendant or in a handmade card layout.  Woohooo!

There are different types of origami paper:

Kami - it is the basic, easiest and cheapest to buy.  It is thin, printed on one side and is easy to fold.
Origamodo - which means "way of paper folding" is handmade paper specially created by 
Micheal Lafosse.
Paper-backed foil - it is more expensive, flashier and is good at retaining creases.
Washi - thick handmade paper usually made with long fibered and soft paper.
Chiyogami - it is an inexpensive substitute for Washi paper.

Thank you for stopping by the blog.
See you soon!

They are glorious. I have a rather large collection of them myself. They can be very addictive
