Kindergarten Art Album with 40+ Design Pages, each with numerous intricately folded papers, snowflakes, string design and patterned paper weavings
Constructed of heavy card stock with paper works on both sides. The inside cover has an applied Raphael Tuck paper doll with a hand constructed crepe paper dress and hat, complete with lace paper petticoat. This is adjacent a white snowflake design on a black background. Also found tucked on this page is a little envelope with fourteen (14) different cut snowflakes. The book begins with art created from circles of paper that have been arranged and folded in various designs and shapes. After the circles, squares are introduced using far more intricate folding techniques to create designs. Folded paper starbursts are the next design element to appear with the introduction of the applied cut paper snowflakes. To the best of my observations, no two snowflakes are alike To this point the colors have been somewhat muted, harmonious or complimentary.Half-way through string art is introduced with various techniques and designs. The colors become far more vivid and in many instances contrasting. The book concludes with intricate paper weavings, many in geometric patterns, two with images of birds incorporated in the design. The final page is elements constructed of paper folded into 3/8 or ¼ strips and folded at various points to create corners for the geometric elements.
