House series: House amongst wildflowers
One of my paper house and flower series. This is a little light yellow house very like my own house in Almonte! All the time spent at home during the pandemic has made me think about my home - and the plants that live here also- differently. We share this space with all these other organisms. The wildflowers I have created here are all "volunteers" in my garden, meaning they have chosen this as their home too. It's pretty magical!
Each of my paper flowers is handmade with care and attention to detail. These flowers are made from crepe paper, card stock, wire, paint and glue. The tiny house is made from painted card stock. Using high quality materials and careful techniques ensures that my flowers will last a long time. I have also treated the piece with UV spray as a protectant.
The painted wooden box is 6 x 9 inches and 3 inches deep. There is hanging hardware on the back and it is signed. This is a one of a kind piece.
This unique shadow box would make a fun addition to a cabinet of curiosities, a bookshelf, or an art collection. I welcome custom orders for paper flowers; these shadowboxes make a wonderful, thoughtful gift.
