It happened slowly over a few months and then full obsession hit – I am in love with gem shapes! I found these sweet little patterns for geometric shapes on mini-eco, she has a pdf on her site or you can find it here. I made these from a thick paper in a mono-chromatic color scheme and just couldn’t stop adding glitter. These little natural crystal forms are popping up in some of my new artwork for this spring and I have dedicated a growing idea board to them on pinterest. I haven’t immersed myself with x-acto knifes and glues like this since art school, which coincidently I just received my 10 year alumni postcard from – yikes.
