Today’s card was an experiment.
For months, I have been ruminating on a larger art piece (on canvas, 48” by 24”) that would consist of three-dimensional interlocking circles which I would paint on, around, and between.
But, I’ve consistently put it off because I wasn’t sure how to go about it and didn’t want to get halfway through it and then find myself stuck.
So, I decided to use today’s ATC as a mini dry run. And, boy, am I glad I did!
Do you know how hard it is to cut and reassemble circles?
Answer: HARD! I had no idea, how hard. I almost lost my mind!!
And, do you know how hard it is to keep paper circles symmetrical when reassembling them?
Answer: Next to impossible!
I tried again and again and again to keep them perfectly round, and failed.
What a valuable lesson!
If I do attempt to do this on a larger scale (which I’m reconsidering) I will not be using cardboard to make my circles. I’ll have to use a firmer material that is almost unbendable. And I wouldn’t have known that without trying it on this little ATC.
So, thank you ATC!
