Week 3: Coat of Many Colors
This week was one of the few stories I really remember. It was about Joseph and his coat of many colors. Let’s just say it doesn’t sound like his dad practiced the philosophy of even portions. Henry likes to point out that I am a little too into that practice myself.
I knew pretty immediately what I wanted to do for this project once I saw the beautiful Lokta paper at Paper Source. Earlier this year I had used my credit at Edward McKay’s to buy an origami handbook. I didn’t know why I wanted it but it was only five dollars. That hot pink slip of credit was burning my pocket. Good thing because it has definitely come in handy.
While browsing through the book and creating an enlarged version of the kimono for church, I recalled that I loved making little origami animals as a child. How great is that!
