As I mentioned on my about me tab,
I love paper crafts.
My Mom worked in the paper distributing business for over 25 years.
The love of paper flows through my blood.
In college, I worked at a paper company, in the Samples Dept.
I played with paper all day long!
I made mock-ups of anything you could think of, by hand!
I miss those days - but I carry with me that love & knowledge of paper.
Ask me about weights, textures, sizes, folds, binding, saddle-stitching, etc., and watch a smile creep onto my face!
Ok, well anyways, now you know I love paper.
Or you may now think I am obsessed -
which I am ok with you thinking - haha :)
I was cleaning this morning and found a project that I started before Christmas.
(shows how busy life has been for this Bishop)
I saw this BEAUTIFUL frame that I wanted to recreate...
I am not making my roses the same as hers. I am making mine more angular and tall. I am a sucker for depth, height and angles. That is the beauty of personal taste, we can all make the same craft and it will turn out slightly different because it takes on our personal touches.
I have 3 mirrors that are 2ftx4ft that I salvaged from our bathroom remodel.
I am going to frame the mirrors with these newspaper roses and then hang all three mirrors, in a row, over the dresser in my master bedroom.
I love paper.
I know I already said that above,
but this project makes me happy and I am glad I found it today while I was cleaning.
