I already showed you the mural I did for my sister's bedroom. But that's not all she got: I also made her a feather lamp.
I had seen similar designs on the web and decided to try and make one myself.
I used a pink Japanese paper lamp as base.
I drew about a million - or so it felt - leaves from craft tissue paper, using a stencil and tracing pencils (used for sewing) and then cut them out with scissors.
Then I added glue at the top of the leave using a glue roller.
And started sticking. (I fixed the lamp to a microphone stand to keep the lamp sturdy while sticking)
Because I used different colours for the paper lamp and tissue paper, you get a great effect when it's lit.
I really liked how it turned out...
But it gets even better, my talented boyfriend made a matching painting!
