Yay! First ever project post. And first challenge! Double yay!

Anyway...I'm sorry I have no "in progress" pictures. I basically made this by getting some cardboard and sticking on random wrapping paper I found in my room. I also had a Darrell Lea chocolates bag, so put that on. Then I put the train tickets on, then the beer lid and the disposable chopsticks. It's rather simple, but I like it. I wasn't actually inspired by anything in particular. I think it was more boredom and procrastinating study.

If you want to know more or I forgot to mention something, just ask.

I recognise those train tickets! NSW state rail system!

A good interpretation of procrastination due to study!

Thanks for the replies!

And kii, yes, it's CityRail. I'm not very fond of them, but oh well. As you can see, I use the trains quite a bit. And of course I procrastinate...it's one of the things I'm best at!

I agree with Rackycoo, it is an interesting composition.  I think it is because there is much motion.  You have the diagonal stripes in the background and the zooming arrows of the bus passes, and then the chopsticks break the 2-d space.  I'm not sure about the words/type that is centered.  I think even if it wasn't in the center, which I beleive throws off the movement you have going, it wouldn't work with the piece. But I'm not sure, it's hard to tell from the picture.  Otherwise I like it and the title you chose for it.

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies to make bottle cap magnets.
