Sum Up Sundays: Craft Fail

Unfortunately I keep forgetting to get enough news papers & magazines from work to do too much from this weeks Make It Mondays.  However, I do have a cake stand & newspaper basket (which was tedious to make but pretty cool inthe end). Keep reading for the failure that was the paper wall decor!
Here's the first cake stand:

This one is for my mother.  She's been wanting one, a ceramic two tiered one to be exact, but not having too much time available to spend in the studio I haven't been able to make one.  Since we have a formal dining room I thought this would look lovely on our dinning table.  The tiers also separate for a tall & short single stand!

The second is for me:

I am going to use it as a jewelry plate for my dresser or shelf in my apartment.  I have one more to make but I am going to try out my new ceramic markers on the plate first.

I took these pictures right before I had to return the nice dslr I borrowed from the library.  I don't have any pictures of the newspaper basket but I promise it was done.  I probably won't have a camera for a while but I will try to borrow another one to post images this week. 

The paper medallion was complicated to figure out.  I thought half a sheet of paper would make enough of an arc to add the two halve together.  Well, it wasn't.  It was about a fourth of the medallion.  So this is a craftastrophe of sorts.  I will definitely be attempting it again though!

I can not wait until I finish work & am able to finally purchase a new camera! It sucks to not have one when I really need it.  Thank you for being patient, oh so patient, with me while I figure out what I can do.

I love link parties!
