This handmade paper Queen Anne's Lace is a replica of a flower growing in my garden. It actually appeared as a volunteer just beside my garden bed- so I moved the edge of the bed to include this beautiful plant. Queen Anne's Lace grows prolifically along the ditches and in fields in mid to late summer. It is not a native plant to Eastern Ontario and is considered a weed by many. This flower is in the carrot family. I tried to capture all of the delicate details of the flower and leaves, without crowding it with too much detail.
The painted wooden box is 8 x 10 inches and 1 inch deep. It is light grey on the sides and a distressed darker grey 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. This flower is made from watercolour paper, card stock, wire, paint and glue. Using high quality materials and 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. I welcome custom orders for paper flowers; these shadowboxes make a wonderful, thoughtful gift.
