This makes me miss Victoria, B.C. A cherry tree in blossom and some people in the park. It's a paper model kit -- you can put it together yourself.
These dresses are made entirely of paper.
So is that one, even the pearls. Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave is primarily a painter but she worked with costume historians and young fashion designers to create elaborate paper dresses inspired by early European paintings and significant costumes housed in museums around the world. The show, Pulp Fashion, is currently on exhibit at The Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Sometimes I really miss that city.Thanks to Carrie for the link.
This scarf is absolutely gorgeous, isn't it? I had a hard time choosin just one thing to feature from this etsy shop, Ava Original. It sells the work of a German felt and textile artist who makes scarves, belts, dresses and more that look like they'd work as fairy costumes for A Midsummer Night's Eve. Felt isn't just for winter.
Felt crowns from Pretty Little Things. (Aren't these little girls beautiful?)
Over at Design Sponge they show you how to make your own vintage-looking marquee letter out of a string of lights and paper.
Artist Elsa Mora often works in paper and in fact she has a whole blog devoted to paper cutting. Currently she is working on a paper cut pop-up book of the fables of La Fontaine for the French publishing house Editions Auzou and she is sharing her progress as she works on the illustrations on her blog. So beautiful and so inspiring! I'll be following this with interest and cannot wait to get my hands on a finished copy.
