Crazy, Fun Sculptures

I thought up these crazy, sculptural pieces as a fun way to showcase some of my scanned artwork- they are basically like these little art blocks that were such a hit awhile back, but on steroids! :-)

I made these sculptures with little components I mostly already had in my stash:  vintage blocks and spools, wood candle holders for some of the bases, scrapwood pieces in various shapes and some very funky knobs off of a dresser that my neighbors got rid of about 2 years ago! (I've been hanging on to them ever since, waiting for the perfect project to come along!)

I also used patterned paper from my scrap paper stash and my new scalloped border cutter. (Fun and easy to make any length!)

 Here they are all finished--

The sides have special messages and doodles too!

Each one is unique and they were so much fun to conjure up! I think my favorites are the ones with the half circle suns.

These sculptures (along with all types of other wonderful new creations!) will be available at THIS WEEKEND'S Iowa Arts Festival, downtown Iowa City!

June 1-3: Friday 5-8pm, Saturday 10am-7pm, Sunday 10am-4pm. 

Here's another look at the types of items we'll have for purchase this coming weekend.  Can't wait!
