The theme for the last week of Whiplash is 'Colour'. I love colour, strong, vivid colours - but I went for white.
"consider white light. When shown through a prism, white light separates into red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple." William J. Peck
I made a box for putting keepsakes in - special, colourful, little objects.

I made a sheet of handmade paper of different white papers and textures which I then cut into leaf shapes. Each leaf was then embroidered with white floss and beads and buttons were also added (in white, of course!) I then embroidered the word 'pure' onto the cover and sewed the leaves to the painted white box. Although its all white, its amazing how many shades of white there are! I like the contrast between the al-white box and when you open it, you find inside all the colour.

    I really like the layering of the paper leaves and all the hand embellishment. It adds wonderful texture to the composition. Thanks for linking your pictures to larger images. The detail of the handmade papers are beautiful. Well done!
