My inspiration for you today is a Birthday Bear. I made him for my little neighbour more precisely his Second Birthday and Christening. It is rather big creation; the bear measures approximately 65x45cm and holds a big gift box 35cm diameter.
I had to hand sketch the body of the bear and used my silhouette for the rest of the parts of the body: head, paws and other details. I painted him using acrylic paints. I made him little vest and added some buttons and attached him to the box so it looks as if he holds it. The box is papier-mâché. I bought it in my local art shop. I also painted and decorated it with acrylic paints and designer paper so it resembles birthday cake.
It was fun project to do and it required a lot of work but well worth the effort. My heart skipped a bit when I saw happiness on the face of the birthday boy when he got his surprise.
Check out our blog for more inspiration from my colleagues. I can’t wait to see your creations. That is all from me for now happy crafting and see you soon. 🙂
