I realized that I hadn't posted the results of my efforts to master pop-ups. Although I can't say that I mastered them, I did get the idea and made a few. The top two are my own design. The bottom is the first successful one I did following the directions in the book. My interest waned pretty fast, but these three sit on the back of the piano as testament to my effort. I may at some point do more work with this since I am so enamored of paper projects, but for now I abandoned my efforts in favor of going back to pastels. My new Sennelier pastels were calling, as well as the rough paper. I've also been crocheting a lampshade, which I finished yesterday. I won't live long enough to do everything I want to do.
