Many blog readers have been fascinated by recent posts from Mrs. Blandings and Emily Evans Eeerdmans that discuss the use of nature-inspired paper cut-outs on walls. (Loosely decoupage-related, you might say.) Their posts reminded me of this project by Thomas Jayne.
In 2004, Jayne participated in eBay's showhouse to benefit Alpha Workshops. Each designer was required to decorate an empty room in less than two months using products purchased exclusively on eBay. Apparently the budget was small, at least compared to what the designers were accustomed to.
As I understand it, Jayne began with a vintage wallpaper sample and ran with it. The framed collage above includes antique drawings, fragments and other works on paper. Thought it might inspire some of the artists out there.
