After unleashing some of the possibilities 3-D printing held, I was inspired to convert one of my paintings to a 3-D modeled light.

The above photograph is a paper model.
The below models exhibit the concept modeled in 3-D.

This process began with a painting.

Then it is converted to a png.


It is cut, transformed, and finishes as a Papier mâché light.

Perfection Stands in the Way of Accomplishment.

The front cover of this 108 page blank lined writing journal encourages the journaler to not let perfection stand in the way of completion. By having unobtainable standards nothing can be accomplished. By setting goals that are within reach, even a stretched reach, they can be attained and progress will occur.

As part of the “Take Over by Happiness” series, this selection of journals creates a unique positive reminder each time it is touched.

Available on CreateSpace and Amazon.
