This is one of the most amazing recycled paper projects I've ever seen! I was checking in with my blog list this morning, and one of my favorite inspirations, Creativadorations, posted an Etsy moment for the day. As I scrolled down, taking in the gorgeous photography of various handcrafted items she found on Etsy, I was especially taken aback by this collage titled "Sun Shaft—Piercing the Bitter Cold" by LollipopArts. It depicts the power of the sunlight as it peeks through the dark clouds in the middle of winter. In the close-up photo, I thought the "sun" was composed of pieces of shiny leather. Actually, it was created using an acrylic gloss medium to adhere paper to an 8-inch x 8-inch x 1/2-inch canvas. Then it was built up with more newspaper to create an amazing surface relief. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill papier-mache project! Very cool.
