Today's artist feature is on Ashley Mankoski from Papyrusaurus on The Craft Star. She makes the coolest stuff from recycled books and paper.
Isn't this adorable? A sci-fi love story, this I Love You. I Know. is a print of Ashley's original artwork and comes matted and ready for framing.
Ashley also has tons of these, cute sayings on book pages. This Tardis print is one I really like, since I just started to watch Dr. Who, and I'm enjoying it.
I got a real kick out of this Polish Porcupine Ball Decoration. What I also got a kick out of was her description, "Please keep in mind that though they look like they could take an eye out, they are made of paper and don't do well in the hands of small children or your drunken uncle Joe."
I have quite a few of those Uncles in my family. hahaha
Ashley also has a second shop where she showcases her natural jewelry designing creations.
Isn't this a totally awesome necklace???
Yep, that's rolled paper with glass beads. So cool.
This last piece I just had to share because of the colors. And yes, those are handpainted twigs at the bottom. This Neon Mixed Media Necklace would look great at a summer party.
You can find Ashley and all her creations here...
Until next time...
