"In my town, there is still snow on the ground, but I'm hoping that if we keep thinking "Spring" really hard, that Spring will arrive! To encourage the arrival of Spring, I'd like to see you actually use springs or something that makes things spring up off your project!"
Here's mine, (there are lots of photo's but I'll keep the words down :-) )
I stamped some images and started to colour, then realised it would take days to colour as many as I wanted, so I sprayed some backgrounds (yep I started stamping before I remembered the photo lol)
Stamped and cut out, by this time I never wanted to see my scissors again! Time to add springs so I set about coiling wire. My first ones were on quite thin wire, and I found that instead of being springy my guys were definitely droopy, so off they came and on with the thicker wire.
If I thought cutting was bad, try photographing a swinging book, in a breeze, with Stampotique bad boys who's only aim is to avoid the camera!
Round and round....
Different tree but still swinging, I blame the Flying Pig, he seemes to be the ring leader, and Romek keeps trying to make a run for it...
Anyway you get the idea
