Playing with Paper

Many of you may be familiar with Coty Farquhar, the beautiful mind behind the Styling, on line magazine and beautiful blog of the same name which originates in Australia. A few years ago, Coty shared some Christmas dolls which she had created from paper and assorted collected vintage finds....she inspired me to fashion some of my own...here is what I have been playing with! Please excuse the poor quality images...I quickly snapped them with my iPad this morning.

 

 

Felted Christmas balls, torn vintage tulle and recycled tissue paper and foil embellish them....

Bits of vintage lace are finding their way into the mix...

They are keeping my mind off the drilling, pounding and hammering going on downstairs...

I think they would look lovely as a tree topper, or sitting on a vintage hatbox or fresh green wreath as a holiday decoration....

I thinking I would like to make a more primitive looking one....

The house is a clean palette for fresh greens and a more simple Christmas this year...My mantra for the holidays...less is more...who would have thought....coming from the Queen of Embellishment!! N.xo
