I have been wanting to tell you all about this AWESOME etsy shop for a while now and finally have found the time to tell you about it. I discovered Paola by accident I’m sure and profiled her on the etsy shop blog where I’m the paper goods editor and when I saw this ledger I had to buy it for my husband for Christmas. It’s made from a map of Italy, and my husband is Italian. His grandparents were from Italy. Paola actually adjusted the size and made me a custom ledger and it turned out absolutely beautiful. Little did I know that she was also an AMAZING artist! I’ll share some of her artwork that she gave me permission to show you, but first check out the ledger she made for my hubby.
Here’s some of the other things in her etsy shop REphilosophy. She is SO creative! I like this stuff because she takes old things that others might throw away and makes new beautiful things from them.
Envelopes made from an Italian history book.
Envelopes made from an Italian cookbook.
A cool upcycled notebook and upcycled matchbook from maps. How cool are these?
Okay, and if that weren’t enough, she’s also an amazing artist. Here is a sketch of hers that she showed me.
If you like this one, go check out her artwork on Flickr here. BEAUTIFUL drawings. Paola, you are wicked talented! I especially love the one with the beautiful different colored houses in a row.Filed under Life, Projects | Comment (0)
