a bright paper bouquet...


Even when we are super busy, we try to use part of our Monday to create something new. The pretty colour palette below was the starting point for two new vintage paper bouquet artworks. We wanted these to look like they had just ben picked fresh from the garden. Lots of greenery, sunny yellows, pretty pink and bush shades, bold reds, fresh white and a smattering of cornflower blue and purple. These 3d artworks are very time consuming as each petal and leaf is cut with scissors from vintage children's books (destined for the rubbish before we rescued them beacuse of their damaged condition), and finding the perfect shade involves flicking through dozens and dozens of titles. You should see the floor when we are finished. Actually, there are so many tiny bits of paper, you can't see the floor!!







We should have taken a photo of the two of them framed up and next to each other, but as usual we were super keen to pop them up in our shop :)
