Wall Decoration

I've had these papier mache punctuation marks hanging around my craft room for donkey's years gathering dust. They were on sale at a craft show along with letters of the alphabet. I couldn't think of a word I wanted to make but I loved the abstract nature of just having the punctuations.

I've kept them very simple, no fancy embellishments, just patterned paper, gleaned from Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Tropical Travelogue collections.

I simply laid the symbols onto the back of the paper and drew around their shapes in black pen. I cut a rough outline out and glued the symbols to the paper. I frilled the border with scissors and glued it to the sides before adding the side strips.

And now they adorn my craft room wall.

Brilliant. Love the paper choices. I really like the question mark. Great addition to your work space. Extravaganza at the craft barn next month. Any chance of making it down?

Those are so quirky in shape Paul that I think the minimalist look is all that is needed. Glad you did it and I bet they look great on the wall. Love things like that.
Hugs, Neet xx

Wow, Paul, these are wonderful! I love how the colors enhance the 3D of the shapes. Very surprising and exciting!
