That title might be a little misleading . . . it's not another class. It's still the Creative Boxmaking class I've been taking. But I couldn't say "Another Box" . . . well, it's not a box!
In fact, it's a Vase - two of them. These vases are made using the same techniques as one would use to make a box, though. Sue does a good job of making the class interesting by having us make something a bit unexpected!
The tall vase was made by layering tissue paper with Gesso. Basically the same process as I used on the outside of the first box. This one gave me a chance to correct my mistakes the first time around, which was basically not using enough Gesso. This is really a very messy process when done right - my lab assistant demonstrates just one of the issues below - but it is really a pretty surface when completed.
(No, pugs do not come with white spotted muzzles!)
Here is a closeup of the other vase. I made this one smaller (more like a basket) because I have these acorns and other seed pods that needed a home. The outside surface of this "box" started out as a brown paper bag.
Here you can see that I punched holes and inserted eyelets (LOVE that Crop-A-Dile tool!!) and then laced the sides together using a coordinating yarn. It would look cool with leather lacing, too.
I have the next box under construction now. I might finish it before the last lesson comes out, but don't hold your breath!! I am keeping pretty busy with all kinds of projects. Plus, it is almost time for another Goal Review. Yikes! Six weeks already?
