Beautiful Papers...........




These are some projects made from the beautiful papers available from Meg's Garden.These papers are so pretty and so detailed, they stand alone. I have deliberately avoided the use of lots of embellishment with what I've made as I believe the papers speak for themselves and need very little enhancement.

A dress, inspired by Marie Antoinette, made entirely of paper, paper doilies and paper lace.

A little bag made from a recycled brown paper shopping bag. The string handles are wrapped in red velvet, it's lined with painted cardboard to give it rigidity and then covered in Meg's beautiful paper. I've added some hand made flowers and velvet leaves.

"Vintage" post cards made using collage papers, lots of distressing, stamps and inks.

All collage images, papers, paper and real lace, velvet leaves and mini paper doilies available from Meg,s Garden.
