I really enjoyed making lanterns this marking period. I have completed 3 (two of which I gave to family members for Christmas) so far and I'm currently finishing another one. My main lantern (above) was inspired by the season of fall. The barren trees suggest winter but I was thinking more of the wind and the motions that the trees make when the wind blows against them, especially in the fall season. My original lantern's color was not altered from its original white while my other three lanterns were colored before cutting out each of their respective patterns.
