I started with old magazines & cut each page into strips of varying widths.
then I folded each strip in half & sometimes in half again depending on how wide it was. After a very long time of folding & sorting colors I began rolling the strips. I used a broken piece of antenna to roll the strips on, but any skinny long object would work.
After rolling I glued the flap to the edge of the rolled strip & glued the rolled strip to this wooden plaque that I rescued from the trash.
After gluing the first piece & realized that I needed an outline of the tree I was planning on creating. I drew the tree & continued gluing strips.
The tree trunk is taking shape.
Now the tree trunk is finished & I will start the leaves
Look, it's a tree!
After finishing the tree I surrounded it with blue for the sky.
To see more pics of the finished piece, please visit my Etsy site.
