30 Days of Creativity: Day 11
Printed Vellum Airplanes
When I lived in NY, I spent many days enjoying The Gates project in Central Park. I used some cropped photographs I had taken of The Gates and printed them on Vellum paper. The photo on Vellum paper gives a luscious translucence that I like.
Plus, the Vellum paper is a good stiffness for flying planes.
When The Gates were up in Central Park, I loved the feeling the bright, sun-filled orange gave against the blue of the sky. Such joy!
I think it would be fun to string a lot of these airplanes together to hang in my boys room. Perhaps their new room will be decorated in airplanes.
To string my airplanes, I used a simple needle and thread, woven along the base of the airplane.
I made sure it wove in and out along the base, from tail to tip. Then I left some thread and started the next airplane.
Inspiration #1 for this project: The Gates in NYC.
Inspiration #2: walking under all the "paper airplanes" at the Denver Airport.
