Have any of you ever used origami on your pages? I just ran into a technique called "Folding the Rose" in which you use folding to turn a square into a lovely little rose. . Here's a link to the instructions.And here's a page in which I used some of my roses. They're on the far right. The subject of the page is a movie set in China so I wanted an oriental look. I based the block cuts behind the pictures on the lines in oriental lettering. There's too much journaling but it couldn't be avoided, unfortunately. The roses are really easy to do and give the page a bit of dimension as well as being decorative.
