And a star was born

2020-02-26-Ballerina

A tiny pop-up (pop-in?) theatre for my first niece’s first birthday, engineered on the fly.

I love the watercolour and pencil textures on the ballerina, but I think the texture only exists because that photo is an extreme close-up.

I put a flap with little paper latches down the side so that the card could be fixed in position as a (very narrow) box.

(Ridiculous putti are so much fun to draw).

Edit to add: The post title is actually a reference to this song
