THIS WEEK’S ART
I promised you guys I would start to occasionally do some “How To” type posts technically I didn’t come up with how to do this. Usually when I have an idea I google it first to find OTHER how to’s – work smarter not harder folks. I wanted to make some mini books because I plan to make a pile of them to put into the bottom of a shadowbox diorama I’m making. THAT will be an actual how to post when I’m finished with it!
THE MINI BOOKS
Using this tutorial video I made mini books out of origami paper. I later plan to scatter them in a strategic pile at the bottom of that shadowbox they are in and hot glue them in place. This tutorial by the way was awesome. I plan to try one of the other tutorials I found but for quick easy little mini books this method worked splendidly!
You can see lots more of my daily doodles over on my instagram! Remember if you decide to participate via Twitter or Instagram please use #ArtitUp so we can all checkout your doodles!
This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!
No real aggravation this week other then my own silly slowness of getting projects done – and getting distracted by other projects. Why can’t I just STICK TO ONE! – and finish that ONE project before getting all befuddled and running off to do another project instead. You don’t EVEN want to see the state of my craft desk…Ok maybe you do – yes this is what it looks like on any given day. A cookie to whoever can count the number of “work in progress” projects are displaying on the desk. LOL
So link up folks we want to see your art!
