Eye Candy....& Random Thursday!





Is this not incredible? I found the link to Tokyobling's Blog on none other than Twitter with these photos. A paper craft art project by Wataru Itou is on exhibition at Uminohotaru and is called "A Castle On The Ocean". It is complete with lights and a moving train....all made of paper...just incredible!

Yesterday was full of surprises! PurpleDaisyJewelry added us to her treasury...way to go vintage!! For you Etsy users, click on over and give some good vintage lovin' comments...it would be so cool to make a front page of vintage gold beauties. And speaking of beauties...don't forget to add a comment to the giveaway..you can enter more than once!

Enjoy the paper eye candy and for those of you heading out for an early weekend...Happy Independence Day!

What an incredible talent! I'm in awe simply because I have a desk full of papers and can never even find a piece to write on, much less create a fabulous piece of artwork! I so admire someone who can look at an everyday item and create a fantasy from it...one that transports you with a story and steals your breath away by its sheer magnitude or intricacy.

My second thought is...Ewwwww! Papercuts! Papercuts!!! Great post! Off to twitter for my second entry! Cheers!
