On Paper - Music Video

I don't normally post here about my day job, but I think this project is a perfect union
of music video and craftiness. I created this video with my partner in crime Maya Bankovic
for Canadian rock band Arkells and their song On Paper. We decided to take the title literally
and printed the entire video on paper, cut the characters out with X-Acto knifes,
and then re-photographed it all, frame by frame.

Also, this post wouldn't be complete if I didn't give a huge thank you to our
amazing team - both on set and in the many tedious days that followed.

Butterfly Card

To accompany my wedding presents, I made a bunch of butterfly cards. I was inspired by
  this butterfly badge by Denise Sharp, and decided to use the idea of butterflies,
but instead have them hovering around a white crepe paper flower.

Plate Clocks

It's wedding season and all my friends are getting married. So of course that means I have been busy
 making lots of wedding presents. Here are a couple of clocks I made out of plates - with help from
the very talented Jelena Pticek who kindly drilled the holes for me. I bought plain white plates, painted
them with Pebeo porcelaine paint and added the clock mechanisms.
I actually made three, but I liked them so much that I decided to keep one for myself
and it is now ticking away in my kitchen.

flowers in your hair

I made these fascinators for the bridesmaids in my friend's wedding. I bought the flowers and added 
the feathers and bird-cage veil. My friend Olga added little gem stones and 
bits of lace to class them up a touch.
