The Woods on the Stairs

December 13, 2012

Digital Image Digital Image I have hung this pattern before, in a bathroom. But I really like this homeowner’s idea of using it in 3-dimentional way, going up the stairs and onto the wall of the landing.

The trickiest part was getting all the trees on the risers to line up with those on the wall – not just the right trees under themselves, but the right part of each tree, so that it looked like one continuous strip of paper.

After plotting the pattern, I used a straight edge and the markings on an Olfa self-healing cutting mat http://www.olfa.com/MatsDetail.aspx?C=10&Id=85 to cut the tops and bottoms at right angles to the sides, on the short strips that would go on the stair risers.

The finished effect is just stunning. This is surely a look that NO one else has!
