Rose Window by Asako Hirata
As I was browsing the Japanese craft book section, I noticed a new trend. Or at least, it’s a new trend to me. There were quite a few craft books for faux stained glass. The fuax stained glass in all the books was made from cut tissue paper. But what really grabbed my attention was the book Rose Window which layered the tissue paper. The result of this technique is absolutely stunning.
Here’s a photo from the book to give you an idea on how these faux rose windows are created. I’m still trying to find out where I can purchase the wood frames to make them. If I can’t purchase them, I’ll probably make my own or use an embroidery hoop.
Below are a few more pictures of projects from Rose Window.
Usually I have a hard time finding Japanese Craft Books online but I was able to find this one on Amazon. I purchased my book at Kinokuniya.
