Carmen Diaz Final project: Nature Dream Catcher

This is the final project I love nature and I love the idea of dream catchers and so I decided to make one with the materials that I have at home. It was an old t-shirt with popsicle sticks and string. I couldn’t find feathers to attach to the bottom so I ended up leaving it just the way it is. It has a very geometric feel to it with a hexagon shape and the steams looking very liner.

Dream Catcher Carmen Diaz Final piece

I decided for my Final to create a Nature dream catcher. I Have always liked the way dream Catchers looked. I chose to go with tree patterns in the middle because I love nature it’s very near and dear to me and I wanted to have something that could hang above me in a way where I was myself closer to dreams full of nature. It was a mixture of cloth popsicle sticks and string to create this piece. Sadly I didn’t have any feathers to attach to the bottom of the strings but soon I can make the update.

The gray was an old cotton t-shirt that I used to wrap around the glued popsicle sticks that formed and hexagon. I tried to color in the tree with some leftover gold glitter I had from a previous project but It didn’t fully get through all the pieces of string and therefore came out a bit messy. But overall I love the way it came out. I created my own Dream Catcher!

Chop Stick Spring Session

In this project, I got inspiration from child mobiles and I wanted to create something for my niece who is one year old. I decided to buy plastic material that had images of sunshine and spring-themed icons like butterflies.
