Debating on Design

Here are a few more photos of the box I have underway. Sometimes it seems like the design of these things doesn’t move quite as fast as I would like. It could be that the delay emanates from my brain. Quite a debate occurs when I am deciding what to do next.

Should it be this color? No, I don’t like that color. How about this pattern? No, it doesn’t go with this thing here. You should paint. No, you should cover it with paper. Raise it up. Keep it flat. More words. Less words. Do this first. No, do that first. (I told you that you should have done that first.) How do I make this object? Are you sure you want to do that?

And so it goes – slow.


Here’s the ‘more paint’ in progress.


Hm-m-m.  Still painting . . .


Adding some iridescent paint.

dod_4Adding some paper to the inside.


Crepe paper – time for a test run.

dod_6 Here’s the test run.  Needs a little polishing.


Found these – I think I know just how to use at least one.


Working on adding some text transfers.


Glitter wasn’t part of the original plan but I’m flexible.  It works here.


Had these beads for a few years and now I have a use for them.

dod_11     These wood shapes are now the newest part of my ever changing idea.  Hopefully, each incarnation is an improvement.

I do hope to pull it all together by the end of the week, but sometimes fate thinks it’s funny to throw a monkey wrench into things.

Thanks for stopping by today!
