Paper crocuses and leaves in a shadow box frame. I was inspired to create this piece by the crocuses emerging through the maple leaves in my garden this spring. It was a moving sight to see this new sign of life after so many months of winter. I felt hopeful and happy and just had to recreate the scene in paper!
The painted wooden box is 10 x 15" inches and 1 inch deep. It is light grey on the sides and a distressed cream colour inside. There is hanging hardware on the back and it is signed. This is a one of a kind piece.
Each of my paper flowers is handmade with care and attention to detail. These flowers are made from Italian crepe paper while the maple leaves are made from painted recycled cardboard. Using careful techniques ensures that my flowers will last a long time. This unique shadow box would make a fun addition to a cabinet of curiosities, a bookshelf, or an art collection.
