Dear Crafty Friends….
DCWV had the most amazing booth at the Craft and Hobby Association Winter Trade Show. The entire booth was filled with the most incredible paper crafts! Now, I know what you may be thinking. "Winter, Theresa? Really??!!!" Relax everyone! I realize it is spring and that we have all left the winter chill behind us. Just stick with me a couple of minutes and you'll see exactly why I was inspired to share this with you now.
As you may or may not know…I am a mixed media artist. However, my favorite medium to work with is paper, which is why I absolutely loved this booth! It was INCREDIBLE…STUNNING…BRILLIANT!!! You are just not going to believe what these guys did with paper.
The sign of the booth was a giant DCWV logo, covered in moss with enormous paper flowers:
All throughout the booth were colorful trees with leaves and flowers created from paper. They were adorned with jewels, butterflies and crystal globes. They were bright, cheerful and sparkly. Honestly…who doesn't love a little sparkle?
Paper animals were dispersed around the booth. No matter where you turned, there was another surprise. Just when you thought you saw the most fantastic design, you turned around and there was another one. Check out this peacock…the tail feathers are stunning!
Check out the details in the eyes…
These birds are made from jewels. The lights glimmered off the bodies of these mates.
This fish is vibrant and cheerful. Each individual scale was placed with such consideration and attention to detail.
While I was literally in heaven as I walked through and photographed this booth….I think this lil guy was my favorite. The construction of this bird with its wings spread wide astonished me. I love intricate, detail work like this. I still get giddy looking at it!
You can tell how much care the designers took in crafting each glorious piece in this booth. A lot of thought and oodles of work went into this booth design. I can't thank DCWV enough for putting together this breathtaking visual masterpiece.
Hope you enjoyed this!
