Where Have I Been?!

I can't believe I have been away from my blog for so long. I spent January sick...yuck!
I also started spring session at school. This session I am taking a Three Dimensional Art class. It's fascinating. Normally, a teacher tells you exactly what they want. Not in this class.
First project's direction: "Make something that represents you, metaphorically, out of 4 pieces of Bristol board." That's it... no examples, no suggestion,'s due next class session! CRAZY!! But I had so much fun figuring this project out. I was challenged and inspired and forgot to keep up with posting on my blog=)

Now here is that crazy, fun project that I put over 10 hours into. I got 100 out of 100 points and my teacher wrote:
"Excellent transformation from flat smooth Bristol board to organic, swirling, non-papery form. Your experiments with the butterflies in negative space and more 2 dimensional depiction was a creative and clever juxtaposition!!(Yeah, I had to look that up, too)
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow- well done! I'm always amazed by people's creativity...I would never come up with something so fun. I did love my art class though. And my photography class!!! It was back in the film developing days; I enjoyed all the vague projects that were assigned to encourage our concept creativity. It was great...

  2. Krista this is amazing, Truly a work of art, you are so talented! Cant wait to see the head project! :) Hugs!

  3. This is even better in person! Fabulous creation, Krista!


Thanks for leaving a comment. It really brightens my day!
