Testing flowers for a centerpiece

Paper Flower Bouquet

So I'm swamped. I'm swamped for the next month. It's good, but it's also crazy. This past week I volunteered for not one but three things. Why? Because I'm a moron. That's why.
I have to say though, I'm enjoying it. I just don't enjoy running around like a lunatic. The good news is that one of those volunteer activities is done. I volunteered to answer phones for a local station's (WNRN) fund drive. I did that for two mornings in a row and really had fun. After that I'd scoot over to a warehouse to help a friend sort through old merchandise for the sale at a yardsale to benefit a music resource center for da youts. There's supposed to be a big VIP dinner to benefit the same charity and I'm making the centerpieces for the tables.
That's where the paper flowers come in. I've got to make quite a few. I guess I'd better get started.

My first evar group of Inchies. I turned them into a collage on vintage ledger paper. I know it's not archival but I'm sure I can spray the heck out of it with archiving spray. I think I'm going to find a frame for it in a couple weeks. I definitely need to go frame shopping soon. I've got all these little bits of things I've made and not framed. It's kind of embarrassing. When people find out that I have a studio and make things they always seem surprised. Mostly because I have very little on display in my home. I shall remedy this! This year! There WILL be my art on my walls and shelves, count on it!
