DO IT: "THIS IS NOT A FLOWER"

Time for another DO IT post!

 

For new readers: DO IT is a column where I transform one of the pins from my ideas board on pinterest into reality. I try not to copy it exactly, but to use it as a starting point - and I try to work with things I already have instead of buying more. The motto: Stop pinning, start doing! {note to self}

 

Okay, first let me confuse you a little bit, because I was confused, too. I saw a picture and thought it was something else than what it really was. But in fact, I liked what I thought it was (but wasn't!) - so I decided to give it a try myself. Are you confused? A little bit? Good!

 

This is the image I'm talking about. And I thought it was a collage of a flower and a real vase in front of it to make it look like a flower in a vase. Wrong. It's a real paper flower in a real vase. But I preferred my initial idea!

 

 

A little bit of cutting, drawing and glueing later...

A collage pretending to be a flower in a bottle that thinks it's a vase next to a pitcher pretending to be a vase holding a piece of metal that thinks it's a flower.

 

Got it?

    You are an artist, my dear! Love it! And yes, it is so good to unplug for something real ;-)
    Greets, Sandy

    Lena, your idea is soooo much better. You did such a great job on it, it looks wonderful. I'm actually going to try and do one myself. Will let you know how it turns out. xD

    So do I - I love it! It reminds me of the sort of thing Sania Pell often does on her blog: http://www.saniapell.com/athomeblog/homemade/experimenting-with-flowers-part-two/

    @chi - wow, that's beautiful. I've been to Sania Pell's blog a couple of times but didn't know she was doing this. Much better than mine of course, but it was only my first try ...
