I delivered these piñata eggs to Verde SF this past weekend. I like this palette. The teal is lovely, I want to make dozens in that color. I integrated some eggs that had more of a floral/marigold color blocking with some end of summer hold-out schemes. I've been reading a lot about Carte Fini Italian crepe paper, which looks like it has a fabulous texture. I'm thinking of ordering some, but not sure I want to add the extra step in the process of cutting strips of crepe paper before I turn it into fringe. I'll probably give it a try, though. So many new colors for me to experiment with!
I am an architect, mother, wife and native East Coaster living in San Francisco, and the paper artist behind papel SF. My work can be seen at The Jealous Curator, Colossal, My Modern Metropolis, Apartment Therapy, and the Martha Stewart Living and Williams-Sonoma blogs, among others. Thank you for reading!
