Bursting out

Tumultuous waves of paper... I've been intrigued this winter with the walls of tissue-texture that form the background for the window displays at the Anthropologie store and finally got around to snapping a few photos. They may be snowflake references, or blossoms. Whatever, they are beautiful forms and make a surprisingly elegant and tactile background. On close inspection, the components remind me of the bright tissue paper flowers we made as kids, although the range of neutrals to white colors used and the sophistication of the cut designs is very different. Just gorgeous.
