i discovered the arjowiggins second skin contest about a week ago, and instantly i knew i had to enter. essentially, the contest is to design and make a mask using the curious collection skin range of papers. you can use other papers too, but i wanted the challenge of only using something specific instead of using lots of other paper too.
i LOVE paper and all things stationery, as well as making things with them. no surprise there i hope. as always when i’m making something, i much prefer to go with my instincts when i can, rather than overthinking and over-designing something. i had the basic idea and shape of what i wanted to do in mind, but from there on i went with what my head/heart/scissors told me to do. i’ve taken a few progress shots (after the jump) as well as this photo of the finished piece if you want to see! i need to take a photo of me wearing it for the site too so people can vote, i hope you will help me with that in a day or two! i will put a link up on here as well as on my twitter.
