I wanted to post some good close up pictures of the paper piece that I did. It was recently entered into a contest so I was revisiting it myself, I thought I would share. Again, it is called the fifth day, and it is my take on the the creation.
Everything is cut from either paper or vellum. I used different weights and types of paper to create texture and contrast, from a graphed, lined, and linen finish to a cotton rag paper. Paper is seriously one of my very favorite things on earth. The basket is woven from a combination of all the paper used and the little gift tag says, "To: Earth. Love, God". Oh, and my favorite part... the gift basket is sitting on Pangaea.
