Still haven't gotten my groove back with the cyanotype jewelry, for all that I still think it's a very good idea. I have for some reason been launched straight at these paper wreaths. Here was the thinking: pop-up books. I wonder about putting pop-ups in accordion folds. J mentions that I should make more Christmas ornaments instead of us having all this bought with crap we don't even really like. I wonder about making an accordion fold wreath, using some bookbinding moves. I make first wreath. Pop-up book guy wrote other books about amazing folding. Amazing folding book appears in my house. I wonder about making them circular. I wonder about putting pop-ups on every fold. I wonder about using my hand-carved stamps. I make another wreath. Now I'm doing another. The best yet.
1. Folding the wreath form takes a while.
Anyway, I'm past the flash flood of ideas phase now and into the "is there any way I could make any money at this?" phase which I am trying to fight off as extrinsic motivation is a bad thing for me. Especially since these take so long.
They do satisfy my long-standing desire to make a thing that makes people say, "wow, look at the work in that!". And hopefully the work will be worth it. I like the detail and much-mess and repetition of it all.previous next
