Folds of My Heart

When I was little I loved Origami. Making things out of paper - one sheet of paper! - that were lovely to play with (animals) or functional (little boxes) was a complete delight.

I recently came into possession of some shadow box frames and I wanted to do something with some beautiful Japanese papers that I had been hoarding away so I decided that it was time to start folding my heart out (haha) once again.
Initially I was going to use white backgrounds but felt the black gave a more striking effect.

This next one is my favourite because of the red paper I used:

I also had some light pink papers and the black was too dark for the background so I used a light green to compliment the pink:

Which one is your favourite?

Have a beautiful day,
