I came across Dutch artist Paula Arntzen via a press release for the new book, Paper Works, where her work is featured. She experimented with paper to create a Paper Process series of bulbous, yet stylish handmade lamps that are composed of many layers of high quality paper, and some with copper foil strips.
Paula's design studio is in Arnhem, Netherlands. She originally studied traditional furniture making and then product design, leading to objects that are both functional and decorative.
Speaking of paper-themed books, Kayte Terry's Paper Made was recently released. It features a multitude of things to make with found papers - 101 to be exact!
And more found items... here are some goodies that were posted on the ATP Facebook page this past week:
Make pretty marbled paper
Popular chevron-style paper braiding
Suede and succulent wedding invitations
Reader's Digest features Yulia's quilling
DIY for giant-sized paper flowers
I'm finishing a wedding project this weekend and other than that it's wide open. I hope you have some exciting plans lined up - enjoy!
