I already posted about the mural I did for my sister's bedroom.

But that's not all she got: I also made her a feather lamp.



I had seen similar designs on the web and here on craftster, and decided to try and make one myself.

I used a pink Japanese paper lamp as base.



I drew about a million - or so it felt - leaves from craft tissue paper, using a stencil and tracing pencils (used for sewing) and then cut them out with scissors.



Then I added glue at the top of the leave using a glue roller.



And started sticking. (I fixed the lamp to a microphone stand to keep the lamp sturdy while sticking)



Because I used different colours for the paper lamp and tissue paper, you get a great effect when it's lit.



I really liked how it turned out...

But it gets even better, my talented boyfriend his artist name is Toonpoot - made a matching painting!
