... A Magnificent Obsession...

I love paper.  I swear you can create a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. out of it.  Anything!  It's an amazing medium simply because it's inexpensive, easy to manipulate, it's everywhere in all sorts of colors and textures, and it can yield a variety of surprising results.  Some of those said results completely blow me away...

Laser-cut paper paper dress should be without it!  By Sarah Kelly of Saloukee Designs.

A testament to absolute patience.  By British paper-cut artist, Julene Harrison.

Wagonalls Wheels.  Who knew a set of encyclopedias could be so...magnificent!  By Brian Dettmer.

And I have the nerve to call myself a paper artist?!

But in all seriousness,  I've said it before and I'll say it again...I'm addicted to paper.  If you saw my collection of paper (glorious paper), you would have to agree.  I don't need an intervention and there isn't a planned guest appearance on Hoarders, but I can not go without creating something out of paper for more than two days.  Addiction or obsession?  Semantics, really.

Ha!  It would seem that someone else agrees with me. ;)
