Craft Robo Project


My first Craft Robo project! Still looks a bit like something that comes in a package of 100 from the dollar store, feh.

It is incredible that it is possible to cut something so detailed as the center flower, which is just about 1" across.

Ashley Bryan Inspired Collage


I love this book!

It inspired me to make a collage. I guess it qualifies as extreme papercrafting because it was extremely tedious to make. I don't know how Ashley Bryan makes his pictures, but I sketched out my design and scanned it to make a pattern. Then, after reversing it, I printed it on the back of all the papers I used. I cut out just the pieces I needed from each sheet of colored card stock. It was very wasteful, I admit.

I wish there were a bit more contrast between the hand and the sun rays.
