Today I fell in love with paper again, but I guess it's a common condition among graphic designers. I love the smell and the feel of different kinds of paper, even the sound of it when you leaf through the pages of some old book. And I especially enjoy how this delicate material can be bent in such many forms.
This post however is about the paper decor I did here in my childhood home today. Oily black and heavy cranes and innocently white and translucent paper cranes captured by the silver thread to silently hang from this branch for many nights to come. Equally many in black and white to keep the balance between light and dark.
And I just HAD to make these little fellas as well! Totoro snowflakes! I ended up cutting at least five, but the fun was worth the time. The idea and pattern I found a while ago from Books&Stories blog, if you'd like to try this yourself then go check it out! *click*.
