Paper Rock Scissors
I've been working for a month or so trying to perfect a new earring design that uses all the beautiful papers that are out there now with the popularity of scrapbooking. We academics do seem obsessed with paper, so it makes sense that the craft side of my brain would latch on to this material as well :) After many experiments with glue and spray paints and eventually nail polish... I've come up with these rectangular paper based forms. I like the versatility of the technique because I can use any kind of paper to whip up a base rectangle! Look for many more of these to come! Here I've posted a pair with a really pretty floral pattern that reminds me of a vintage fabric and a pair with a maroon and cream dot pattern that is reminiscent of Art Deco!
