Flooring Paper

“Nothing is a mistake. There is no win and no fail, there is only make.” -Sister Corita Kent

I love hearing about other people’s process for making things. Specifically, I love asking people how they get their ideas.

My ideas usually come from a material. As in, I love the way that cardboard feels, or the little noise that cupcake liners make when they brush up against each other. I know…weird/creepy. But it’s true!

Anyway, I cut these half-flowers from a roll of flooring paper (you know, that paper you roll out to cover the floors when you’re painting?!), which is a material I came across on an Instagram post by Chanel Dror. She uses it to wrap presents, which is genius.

I didn’t even know what I was going to make with the flowers once I cut them, but I just loved their color and shape and knew I had to create some sort of paper wall with them.

All of this is to say, “Nothing is a mistake. There is no win and no fail, there is only make.” Even if the only reason you have to make something is kind of weird.

Things I’ve loved this week:

Soundbreaking: A documentary series about recording music that is just…so great. This may sound dramatic, but it’s changing the way I listen to music.

This home tour/interview with Gabby Basora of Tucker. Her use of color/pattern is so clever.
