Designing

Was sketching around in my Moleskine today and studying some pop-up card templates trying to come up with my own designs. Saw some motifs on Japanese paper that I had bought for an art project some time ago and decided that I would design a collection of about 5 pop-up cards with Japanese motifs. I also went to the library and borrowed a book titled Designer's guide to Japanese patterns, by Jeanne Allen. The book was rather inspiring, I hope I have time tomorrow to sketch a few more designs. The photo shows my first design. I'm rather pleased with it.
