For it’s birthday, I’ve made this nine-year old blog a pop-up card, inspired by Arno Célérier, whose work I saw on David A. Carter’s facebook page. I generally don’t spend much time making pop-ups, but I do like cutting paper. Sometimes, while sitting having morning coffee with my husband, I cut silly little shapes from any paper that near me, just because I like the activity of cutting. Then I throw the shapes away.
Seeing Arno Célérier’s work has made me think about assembling these little paper doodles into pop-up cards.
The assemblages above is to celebrate nine years of blogging.
On this same date, in 2014, four years ago, I started engaging on twitter, so it’s a four-year old birthday for @paulakrieg. Here’s my birthday card to my twitter handle.
A sweet little close up detail:
I’m liking having been inspired to play in this way.
Happy Birthday to all!
