the tower is finished

Hi bloggers,
Tonight I finally finished this "tower" that I have been working on for ages.  There are a couple of reasons why I made this, firstly I was inspired by the artist Hundertwasser, I am reading a book about him which talked about trying to think like a child when making art, it made me think about when I was at nursery and we made towns and crazy houses out of cereal boxes and toilet roll tubes and things all stuck together.  Then my brain made a connection between these and the collage work I have been doing in my little books, it's been a problem because it's so difficult to display them, only one person can see them at a time and they would get damaged if a lot of people handled them, so I though, I know I will do my collages onto boxes, that way I can display my collages in a way that many people can see them without having to touch them.  So here is my first attempt, its quite meaningful to me, but not perfect, but then its my first one, hopefully there will be more to come. Hope you like it.

Have a great evening everyone.
