Hey, everyone! This is my first post to this forum! I'm a student at MassArt in Boston. I enjoy making crafty things to rest my brain from all the high-concept assignments I have every week.
Anyway, onto the pieces!

This is a simple gift box I decorated with an Eames design rubber stamp, ribbon, and paper. The paper circle is from Paper-Source, one of my favorite stores!!

This is a birthday (but all-occasion, really) card I made.  The base is chipboard covered in silver paper using a tab-fold-over method. One side of paper was bigger than the shape and had tabs cut in it that I folded and glued down to the reverse side, then a sheet that was the same size/shape as the board was glued over that to hide the tabs and cover the rest of the back. I affixed washers and beads using Gel Medium. Finally, I tied miscellaneous tubing through the hole for extra splash!

Obviously, these are both pre-personalization. Birthday greetings were written on the blue circle, and a birthday letter was written on the front and back of the card.
Hope you guys like them!

I know nothing really about art, but i see that u used circles in both pieces. Do u find yourself using a lot of circles? I tend to be circular in some of the things I do instead of angular...

I reeeally like the colors u used. sweet job

Hmm..I never really thought about it. Really, my designs tend to be angular. I think these two just ended up the way they are due to the available materials I had. I love to horde supplies so when I make something I just set it all out in front of me and pick stuff out until something works.
