In My Studio Garden...

…grow paper peonies.

I made these stylized flower wands using bleached and unbleached coffee filters, twine, satin and organza ribbons, lace, sparkling rhinestones, and double winged butterflies, made from beautiful embossed white papers.

A bouquet of paper flowers in shades of creamy whites, old linen, coffee bean, and toffee ~ the natural and soft palette for this collection ~ was the result.

They are precious gathered in small bunches in wire baskets for a woodland outdoor party or randomly placed on rustic farm tables.

Indoors they are charming as well, placed in terra cotta pots wrapped in crocheted doilies and twine and sitting on a vintage desk.

In a few weeks I will be attending an art retreat in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina. This Once Upon A Dream prairie fairy tale event is destined to be “a dream” for all those who attend! {For details you can click the link on my side bar.}

I will be participating as a vendor at the welcome night at The Crest Pavilion and this is one of my new collections I will be selling, as a homage to the prairie~tale theme of the art weekend. Vendor night is open to the public so any of you who are in the area, please stop by to say hello ~ I’d love to meet you in person.

Thanks so much for your visit.

Ciao amici,
