Rolled Paper Art Landscape


Hello! Today I have something a bit different to share with you.  It's an art project that I'm going to be leading the older homeschool kids in this coming week. It's called rolled paper art and is akin to quilling (of which I haven't tried my hand at yet)  I decided to do up a tangible demo for the kids to see what they are going to be working towards.  It took me a lot longer than I thought, although I did have many interruptions along the way!  At one point my son said "Mom, stop being crafty and just read to me." So I did.  I have created a landscape in the frame....can you see it?  The water and the mountain, the trees and the sun with it's rays stretching out into the sunset.  


I am just so delighted with how it turned out and I'm very eager to see what the kids come up with.  They'll each have a small frame (a bit smaller than mine) and the sky is the limit as to what they want to create.  


I took a few different angles of the frame to help also show the 3d effect of the different sizes of the rolls that make up the picture.  


Thanks for dropping by! I had a lot of fun creating this....something new and I would love to create more sometime!  Have a beautiful day....and if you have some time on your hands, perhaps you could try paper rolling!

Wow! This is beautiful, I love it. I think I will do this with my kids. I love that it's art and that it will last and be something they can hang proudly in their rooms.
