Over the past few days I have been experimenting with re-making my Christmas card design in 3d. I don't know why but whenever I do a drawing nowadays I can't resist trying it in 3d too. I'm addicted!
This is the 3d version (as seen in my new header!):
It was the tutu skirt that swung it for me. I kept envisioning Victoria Stitch's black dress/skirt made from a load of scrunched up black netting like a tutu. I just HAD to try it. And I love it how it came out!
The white Christmas tree is made from pipe cleaners and glitter. It had little diamonds and stars stuck onto it. I also had a lot of fun making the tiny little presents and sparkly angel and striped bag. I think I am addicted to making tiny things!
I wonder what's in all those packages? I think there might be a tiny pair of glittery shoes in one of them. And the round one has to be a tin of chocolates.
While I was photographing the scene I noticed that in some of them the shadows were really long. So I took some shadow photos! I think they look pretty cool.
I've been having a lot of fun with glitter recently. And sequins! Christmas = glitter and sequins! Actually anytime = glitter and sequins for me. But I've been using them especially lately for my Christmas cards. Oh it makes me happy!
Yesterday Henry and I went into town to do some shopping. I wore my new dalmatian print coat. It's so soft and warm! I love it. It makes me feel like Cruella D'eville!
We bought some christmas presents, some food and I got some winter boots because my other ones have worn down and the heels are all wonky. Henry tried on lots of glasses in Claire's accessories. It was a nice day.
I hope you had a nice day too!
