Cabinet de Curiosités

I simply cannot stop staring at these paper sculptures by Zim & Zou. There’s not just one element to focus on but lots of intricate details, keeping your eyes moving further and further into an almost fantasy world.

Don’t your fantasy worlds always include glitter?

When does a book include too many patterns?

…um, never!

Sara and I sometimes joke about having paper ADD, one moment this paper is our favorite then two seconds later another one, and another one, and another one. If I ever had to commit to just one I would probably have a panic attack. Luckily some things incorporate a variety of paper and prevent a design commitment meltdown. These handmade books from Brenna of B Bear Productions combine loads of pattern and color into a single book.

She even has a series of  books made up of envelopes that are a perfect journal for that person that tends to collect memories rather than write about them. Just think about all the photographs, ticket stubs, love notes, and mementos (not to be confused with the soda explosive candy) you could tuck in each little pocket. And in this digital age all those things are even more precious.

Canine Collage by Peter Clark

How awesome are these paper collages from Peter Clark?

Even if you’re not necessarily a dog person I’m sure you can appreciate them. Using a mix of texture and pattern they really capture the quirky personality of each dog. I think what makes them especially stand out from other paper collages is that they are three-dimensional. Look at how the edges pull away from the page…such a little detail that gives so much more life to the work.
