Papercraft commission! The lady on the left is the client’s character, a tiefling named Ballast, and on the right is Ianthe, who belongs to the client’s friend (and for whom this piece was a gift). Their designs were super fun to work with!
Acrylic paint scraped with an old gift card. Collage. Written with a black Micron 1.0 - don’t do that. Writing on cheap (craft) acrylic paint (even if there’s no gesso involved) kills anything with a felt tip. D’oh.
I joined Get Messy in December but was a bit overwhelmed with the first season I jumped into. Most of the pages I made are in my moleskine journal, but I did attempt a separate journal (above) that I never finished… and don’t intend to. The seasons after this one were much more inspiring!
Q: My great grand big and grand big are both graduating at the end of this month. I wanted to make them each something, but I’m not exactly sure what. Any ideas?
A: For senior crafts think “memories” and “keepsakes.” A commemorative big/little gift sets it apart from other DIY gifts you may have made through the years. Celebrating the good times you’ve had together, and/or wishing sisters good luck with their future lives, are both excellent themes for your crafts. Most traditional big/little gifts can be tweaked to make them extra special for senior sisters. xoxo ;)
