Catch up..

Okay, I’ve missed a few blogs, get ready lol 😀

 

I was book cutting on Thursday, 19th Nov 2015- to create a tree shape, which worked well – however, it produced a lot of scrap paper, I amalgamated it into a pile to save for later and saw a face staring back at me lol

as a branch in my thought process began to grow-  I am currently papermaching a 3D face onto the inside of a book cover…..

Then, on Sunday, 22nd Nov 2015,  I had an epiphany and began a thought process which stemmed from my earlier poem ‘Paper cuts’ – Self harm. At the moment I am making an array of origami diamonds and flowers, which I want to use in an actual photo-shoot, depicting ‘Love, beyond the book’ It is a personal project I feel ties into both the Beyond the book and Dots and dashes themes and I am eager to make it work. Aided by the fact, I actually have a book entitled ‘Love’  – Here is the Solitaire and flowers chain as of Thursday  27th November 2015- its grown a little since then!

The Book has turned out to be too heavy for the piece in practise, also several people in separate situations suggested I discard it as it detracted from the cascade itself. So I feel a little better about it not going to plan 😀

Currently the chains are hanging from my paper mached tree branch in the studio. I have a collection of things to add to it, including beautiful quilling birdies 🙂 I cannot wait to see them on the branches of the trees.

I’ve had a little practise with quilling in the past, so instead of going out searching for designs I made it up as I went along. Here is my original sketch of how I wanted the birds to look and the outcomeWP_20151129_12_26_51_ProWP_20151130_09_41_56_Pro

Much more stunning than I hoped for !

I have also created a 16 pt star from modular origami –
