I just spent the better part of my weekend obsessed with cutting things out of old books, and the always stunning work of Utrecht based artist Anne Ten Donkelaar makes me want to put Monday on hold so that I can just keep cutting! Perfectly snipped flowers, leaves, and cacti delicately pinned into position creating the most magical gardens EVER. Sigh. Happy Monday.

    These are so perfect for spring, thank you for sharing!
    Also, my mum offered me your book “Creative Block” for my birthday and I am so glad she did. I guess she was trying to say “We are never too old to be inspired”…

    Typically we see collage with collections of flat images overlapping and fighting for your visual attention. However, Rachel your work has wonderful movement, use of OPEN space and let’s not forget the COLORS! Keep on growing!

    […] I’m utterly besotted with the wonderful artwork of Anne Ten Donkelaar, who carefully cuts out photos and magazine prints of flowers and reconstructs these dreamy floral arrangements. I would love to see these in person! Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here. […]
