I have a bit of an obsession with paper dresden. Creating objects that look old and gilded is such an amazing process for me. It took me months of experimentation to find a formula that would age it properly, and I think the finished look is convincing. Here are a few of my pieces. I copied the wreath from Donna O’Brian at The Ribboned Crown – I just had to have my own. The little “prayer box” is made of paper with some moss tucked in, and the shoe is paper also. I usually get on one of my “jags” around Christmas time, and then it fades away as the gardening season takes over. The little shoe has a rhinestone center, and I added rhinestones to the wreath also- it gives them a bit of sparkle.
