Summer is the best time to appreciate cool blues. Here in the Midwest, we recently had our first heat wave of the summer. With temperatures reaching into the 90s for almost a week, I'm sure I wasn't the only one dreaming of a cool pool.

This 5x7" paper collage is the perfect relief from the heat. Using decorative blue pool paper, plain blue paper, and a lined note card I created this simple oasis.

More cool blue was used to decorate this stretch bracelet which has text diamonds on blue circles.

More Bracelets

I'm loving this idea of creating wearable art, in addition to my collages. I started covering clear resin bangles with decorative paper and covering them with a shiny gloss. (see above)

Then, I started experimenting with creating mini collages on wooden stretch bracelets. This time I was inspired by shape and color. (see above)

Now, I am thinking about my next line. I still have a few of the bangles left and probably a dozen of the stretch bracelets left, even some white ones.

What kinds of designs, using paper, would you like to see on bracelets?
