Today I’m sharing my DT inspiration project as it’s time for a new challenge over on More Than Words Challenge Blog. Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge and this time the theme is:
Word Inspiration – Books
Creative Challenge – BOOK PAPER
Well I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was for this challenge lol. I love me some book paper, pages, books, anything at all, the only problem was, what to make? So many ideas were coursing through my head and I just couldn’t decide. In the end I decided to go 3D and make some home decor which is now hanging up in my studio. I’m really trying to make things that are useful so they don’t end up in a box so why not make something I can display on my studio wall (AKA the spare room!) Sooooo, with that in mind, here’s what I made.
So as I was making my little Kusudama flowers, I was wondering what to do with them and then thought about making something to hang on the wall. I had just been commenting on some of our current mini challenge entries where the word inspiration was Sun, so I guess maybe this was in my head still, and I started thinking about a sunburst made from book pages. I’ve seen these made with a mirror or a clock inset in the centre but I decided that I wanted the centre to be made from the Kusudama flowers.
The sunburst is made from rolled up book pages so at least that was easy peasy.
After gluing all the paper rolls into position, I added my Kusudama flowers to the centre, with the final touch being the coffee coloured flower in the centre.
And here it is hanging up on my studio wall…
coffee to stain (optional)
(wow shortest list ever lol)
