Thousand Paper Stars by cherriuki Thousand Paper Stars by cherriuki
"They say if you make a thousnad paper stars...
You can make a wish!"

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ummm, has anyone made that many paper stars and cranes before? o.o

Well...this one sure didnt turn out the way I wanted, but I reckon, it turned out better than I thought. XD I like using watercolor for black hair. <3

Hope you like, 1000 paper stars :heart: (well...i didn't really draw in 1000 stars or cranes...DX)

Media: watercolor, canson paper, white poster paint

ohohoh, note: I got the the idea of stars and cranes inside a water bowl, from this music video i saw. <3

Pretty...I haven't got to a thousand, especially that it can be very fiddly to make origami stars ;P

i started folding paper stars before i heard about that.
today i have over twenty thousand paper stars in a box and never stopped making them.
i don't think it works, but i kinda hope it would one day.

She's so beautiful...so pretty...
I love her clothes, her hair, everything.
The background is also very nice, lightish pink with a heart and tiny bits of sparkles and of course, the fish bowl with the origami. It's so beautiful~
This artwork is so amazing I fell in love at first sight~
This makes me feel sentimental and nostalgic~

Not nesecerally. I printed lucky star patterns offa here (DA) so I could cut easier. I started back in February, but i didnt fold daily for a long time. So in short, if your focused you could probably do it in less than a month.

The wish factor doesnt work, however. I tried to make a wish that our missing dog would come back FIVE DAYS ago....no sign of him ;~;

I did make 1000 paper cranes in different sizes. Ended up gluing them together to form a bouquet of flowers. It was my art project a couple of years ago. :P

Very cute girl. >.<
