Candy Wrapper Fashions - Lokokina

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
Today I have some eye candy to show you - and I mean candy in the near-literal sense of the word!

Mariam Saakashvili of Tbilisi, Georgia was a winner of a recent giveaway here at All Things Paper. While emailing to let her know the good news, I clicked on her blog link, and was delighted to see something quite different and lovely.

Mariam is an avid sketcher of detailed, historical costumes, which she colors with watercolor paint, ink, and crayon.

After being introduced to decoupage, Mariam began translating her fashion ideas into paper pieced collages, using richly colored candy wrappers.

She comes from a family of artists and fashion designers, and studied art in Tbilisi. Like many of us, Mariam was attracted as a child to shiny candy wrappers.

She was compelled to save them, and has built up quite a collection over the years. Mariam even keeps it categorized, which I'm sure has been helpful when arranging the eye-catching wrappers into color coordinated costumes.

She has been making her candy wrapper fashions for at least the past several years, and of course I had to look through all of the pictures to pick which ones to post... not a hardship, as they're all regal!

What a great excuse to buy candy, eh?! "Oh, I must have it for my art..."
