Paper Cuts Reflective

Pop-up card

Within a visit to Manchester on Thursday evening, I came across the card above, amongst others, in Paperchase. It had not occurred to me earlier that the shadows I desire to create in my lampshade resemble to layers created in some pop-up cards, such as that depicted above. Coming across these cards provided me with further inspiration for the scene I wish to create in my lampshade to form the shadows. I intend to research this element further and experiment with some of the techniques applicable to my lampshade shadow creation, to broaden my experience and skill for my exhibition piece. This experience has shown me that inspiration can be gained anywhere – even from simple shopping.
