Paper Gardens

These frames are four times as big as my paper roses and gerberas and are more like small gardens. I’ve added paper lilies which don’t seem to work very well on their own but I like them with the other flowers and foliage. These frames are going, along with some of the smaller ones, to be exhibited in the St. Enoch Centre in Glasgow at the Unexpected Artist exhibition.

Paper Roses

IMG_8417I’ve been making framed paper roses! All designed and cut with my Silhouette Cameo. Shaped with a small paintbrush handle and assemble with a glue gun. The one on the bottom right is the prototype.

I made them from an old copy of the Reader’s Digest Guide to Creative Gardening that I bought a couple of on eBay.

They’re inspired by the book deconstruction project I did in my third year of uni (pictured on the right) which sadly didn’t survive past my uni years.

I’ve got plans for other framed paper flowers as well.roses-web5 roses-web6roses-web4 roses-web3 roses-web2 roses-web1
