Paper Pretty

A while ago I ordered a FABULOUS piece of art for a client from Furbish which happened to simply be an amazing piece of handmade lace paper mounted and framed.  When I perused the new items from West Elm I spotted a similar work and was reminded of how much I love this simple, abstract look.

Natural Curiosities sells a collection of framed handmade paper works that I also covet. The grey one makes me particularly weak in the knees.

But these pieces would be easily made by taking a trip to a local paper or art store a perusing for a decorative paper.  I found a couple on Amazon (click images for links) and Kate’s Paperie that would look fabulous framed.  And when you do it yourself, you can pick a great solid color paper to mount these on the coordinates with your decor! How fabulous would these light colored papers look on dark burnt orange, navy or red? Just pick up a can of spray mount, spray the back of the decorative paper and affix to the solid background.  Pick up an affordable frame at Ikea and you are all ready to go! Since each piece will be different, making a series of three would be GORGEOUS.

  1. SOLD! Brilliant idea! I’m shopping for paper right now! Oh, btw, where is the post you had late last year about making a bulletin board using fabric and an awesome mirror frame? Can’t find it anywhere on your blog! Thanks, Erin! Your blog ROCKS!
