As promised, here are a few more shots of the nearly completed paper moon. I collaged vintage sheet music covers from the 1920’s and ’30’s onto the back.
We attached the moon to one of our kitchen tables, which was the perfect height and very stable too. We glued a piece of wood to the back, which we then screwed onto a supporting structure. Our weighty tomes and Le Creuset cooking pots came in handy.
Et voila! The paper moon. We did some more work to make the midnight sky background, scattered with gold stars and a skirt to hide the table legs.
I can tell you that it looked fantastic! We’ll have access to many photos that our photographer and many of our friends took on the day of our Fifth Anniversary Celebration over the next few days and weeks.
We gave each of our guests a crescent moon lino print and an admission ticket to the Paper Moon Gallery when it comes online.
Today, Steve and I are off to Austria for about 10 days, traveling by train and staying in some beautiful places. And guess what? The moon in the sky looks just like our paper moon!
