I stumbled across Haru today on Etsy. The paper wreaths are just gorgeous.

I am getting married soon and I'm looking for dresses. I am completely crazy about Stephanie James Couture tea length dresses, particularly the "Audrey" style dress. I am desperate to buy it and I think I might cry if i don't have it. Anyway, a paper one would be quite fitting and these are some of my favourites.

I have just over a week before I move home from Atlanta to London. I am trying to finish this canvas during that time. I don't know what I'll do with it since I can't fit it in my suitcase, ha! (If you want it, I'll send it to you.) At the moment I'm just working on the surface with layers of paper, book pages, magazine pages, varnish and acrylic paint. I usually use oils but I don't have time right now.
I have just finished a simple canvas piece which I feel might be the start of a new series. I found that pages of old, delicate books become translucent when soaked in varnish. Layering the pieces of paper creates an interesting effect. I have so many ideas about what I can do with this technique - making use of the layers of text, manipulating and cutting the pages, colours, building up the paper. Oh! The possibilities are endless. What do you think of it?
