Recycled fashion for your home

Friday, July 23, 2010

As many of you may have noticed from my previous posts, recycled fashion need not stop with clothing and accessories.

Michelle from Paper Tree Designs is an artist living in Brisbane, Australia. She is studying interior design, and creates beautiful paper art for the home.

Much of her art is utilising vintage and recycled books, many which have been sourced from op-shops, and are often damaged in some way.

These previously caught my eye, 3 vintage atlas tags hand stamped with fauna from the Webster's Dictionary, so beautiful:

And look at this lovely 'Ride em Cowboy' wall art. This design shows 9 cowboy images taken from a rare copy of 'Cowboys, a junior golden guide', published in 1964. A perfect piece of art for a child's bedroom:

Michelle is currently holding a generous competition to giveaway one of gorgeous artwork pieces (for Australian residents) or two sets of tags (for residents living outside of Australia) on her blog. For more details check out Paper Tree Designs.
