Day 245: Paper Star #2

Paper StarLast Saturday, I finished my paper star. Here’s a summary of what I did to make this.

  1. Created a star-shaped paper frame using pieces of black construction paper glued together.
  2. Glued white paper to the back of the star and then trimmed it to also be the same star shape as the frame.
  3. Glued together strips of red paper to make long strips that would fit over the whole star. I did the same with pink strips of paper.
  4. Then, I glued the strips of paper onto the star, alternating between the red and pink sort of randomly.
  5. Finally, I trimmed off any of the excess paper so that the paper strips formed to the shape of the paper star.

Mine star is now hanging on my bedroom wall, and I love it! I would guess that the whole project took about 2.5 hours total over the two days.

Day 95: Jim

Jim with Eyes Closed

Jim From Above

Sleepy Jim

Because of his horrendous fever, I was excited Jim was still alive so I took some pictures of him last night. Most of them turned out kind of weird and blurry because I used the flash, but blocked it with my hand when I took the picture. It made them really red, which is kinda cool.

Day 33: Heart

Just made a little doodle tonight. Actually, I shouldn’t say that it’s little. When I was thinking about making this, I figured it would only take me about half an hour, but it ended up taking about an hour and 15 minutes because of all the little circles. That’s a problem I have right now, actually. I keep underestimating how long everything will take to make. I need to start doubling whatever my original estimate is. If I think it’s gonna take one hour, it’s gonna take two, and if I think it’s gonna take two hours, it’s gonna take four. Hmpf.
