So I have finished and installed my first book arts project for this year. Pardon the bad lighting, my roommate and I used her reflective wallet to bounce the light onto the installation because we could not move the light towards it because of screws and fear of breaking a porcelain light fixture (will get good lighting soon).

Also I have added three more Marie Antoinette’s, there are about 7 more for me to draw and paint still, not sure if these ones will get the iridescent watercolor…

Then last, but not least is a practice sculpture I made, if anyone knows me they know that I don’t like saws and this was a project that required me to learn how to use saws… Scared Johanna Was Scared.

So I have finished cutting out the snowflakes/doilies whatever you would like to call them. I have posted pictures of them in an arrangement that I am pretty sure is going to be close to the final product. Now I just need to press them and figure out what the exact pattern is and start gluing!

So with this piece I am putting together I am using sheet music and cutting them out like snowflakes, but not normal child-like snowflakes, very detailed and particular snowflakes. I am currently trying to piece them together and trying to decide which way this will be the most effective and in a way that’s possible to put together. I have an idea of making some bowls as hanging fixtures with either flowers or fake candles I don’t know because after taking these photos I am really loving the last way I connected the flakes and they look so delicate and pretty and detailed, but I’m not sure how I would PVA these together, obviously one at a time, but I also need a way to display this and I would to either see it on a wall maybe hung by fishing wire? Or as a table runner and make a complimentary bowl, either way its a representation of history and feminine dining rooms. I remember my grandma put doilies everywhere and making this takes me back to being at her house looking at all of her make-up and perfume on her dresser sitting atop these delicate white detailed doilies.
