Astrid Eudeline’s creative art and paper craft
Astrid Eudeline is a French DIY blogger, fashion stylist, stop-motion animation maker, paper artist and author. Basically, she’s an incredible artist. While folding and gluing geometric 3-D decorations out of colourful sheets of paper may sound like child’s play – both literally and figuratively – but in the hands of the French paper artist, it becomes a creative craft. The petite multitalent is also an artist in several other mediums, but her affinity with one of the simplest materials available – paper – is what makes her an active part in the #authenticbeautymovement.
Inspired by the pastel brand’s colours and the minimalism of both the packaging and the ingredients, she decided to create simple shapes that come to life when displayed in clusters or filled with dried flowers, everyday objects and decorative knickknacks. Special software allows her to translate concepts and ideas into perforations on a one-dimensional page, which are transformed into three-dimensional objects with little more than a bit of glue – and the work of her own two hands.
It’s a wonderfully simple creative craft, a talent that arose from a lack of a different creative talent, as Astrid told us. “I love playing with colours and creating beautiful objects. I’m so frustrated I can’t draw well, so the paper art helps me to express myself and make the images I have in my head a reality. Plus, it has taught me patience.”
