paper flourishes

by Grace Bonney

last week’s past & present was such a treat for me because i’ve been obsessing over flourish artwork lately. so i was happy to hear from ann martin at all things paper about this beautiful marriage certificate (with calligraphy and pen flourishes by carole foster) to which she added paper filigree. i love the idea of paper acting as the flourish on the page, and it brings such a nice 3d element to the certificate, which can be sort of a dull document unless you spruce it up some. click here to check out more of anne’s work and her other sources of paper inspiration.
