saturday’s deadline for the elsie marley mobile swap came and went. and i didn’t send anything out.
i’ve been struggling with ideas. my first idea was to create “globes” of colored string, by paper mache-ing them around small balloons. but the balloons were never a perfect sphere, and the globes looked like string with a lot of glue on them, and not the modern coolness i pictured in my head. on to idea number 2, above: hand cut circles of painted paper backed with old text. hand sew them together, hang. while i like where this is going, it just doesn’t fit my swap partner. and i don’t want to send her something i like, that she may not.
thankfully, i have idea number 3. it’s not a radical departure from my other mobiles, but i think it’s a good solution. now i just need to make it…
