I thought I should post some of the new stuff that is in production now in the Bindlegrim studios, that I hope to have done for this year's 6th Annual Halloween Trunk Show in Denver... with some vintage style products.
Did I mention I absolutely love old paper lanterns? There is something about the 2D panel design in combination with the thought process of a 3D construction (with the ability to lay flat for storage, or fold out via connecting pieces during display).
I'm in the prototyping phase right now with some new tools that are allowing me to create some of my own imagery, utilizing my studies of the shape and configuration of vintage items. I am definitely in a "getting to know you" phase with these tools, and if I can get this to work with fewer flaws and challenges, in the end, then I think I will have to post something on my experience. In the meantime, the enjoyment of the spooky glow is keeping me going!
