When I was a teen I used to cut up old magazines to make photo collages.

But one woman who's made it her business to document and celebrate these angels of the formica tables is Candacy ... Read More

Now I think I'm pretty handy with scissors and paper - but I've got nothing on artist Eloise Corr Danch who crafted this beautiful dress completely from newspaper and book pages!
Called 'Ruffian Paper Doll', the dress was exhibited in October at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York for the gala opening of the exhibition SLASH! Paper Under the Knife. The Victorian era–inspired dress features pages of the book Ruffian: Inside Out, and Le Monde newspapers ... Read More
