I Am A Confessed Paper Hoarder!
I am. I also like to collect paper flowers and embellishments even though I usually have no use for them. For the last year, I have bought pretty scrapbooking paper almost every trip to the craft store. I just love it and I don't really know why because I have no desire EVER to scrapbook! I just don't have the patience for that sort of craft. Also, I like art that I can put up right away and enjoy, rather than wait for others to visit to show them my scrapbook album that I worked so hard on. I know...it's the memories that are important, right? Right now I would rather pay someone to scrapbook my pics for me. So...what the heck am I suppose to do with all these supplies?? Well I accidentally stumbled across an idea! I am excited about it, but I am not sure if others would feel the same. As I sat and painted frames the other night, I started to experiment with paper and flowers. I came up with an idea that would display the pretty paper I have and cute (not to mention expensive) paper flowers I have collected throughout the year.
I think they would compliment a room that holds a shabby chic look with a mod spin to them. Think Amy Butler! I love shabby chic that is not too Victorian looking and not too country looking. I like the femininity of shabby chic and the simplicity it possesses. So that is why I adore these pieces of framed art. They are bold, colorful, and shabby chic all in one!
