Staple City  by jackie8

Staple City

Oh dear......! I saw this in a magazine, it looked so cool, but I didn't really have enough time to commit to this today (Roy home soon, dutiful wife needs to have dinner on the table...!) so this is it! Done more proficiently the staple city looked so realistic!!

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments and favs over the last week, now counting down to the end of my year, not long now!!

PP 13/2
I've got another 60 to go!! This is brilliant, love the glow from the 'lights' in the city!! A very clever idea.......I think you did it brilliantly!! Hurrah a fav!!

February 11th, 2013

New York City here we come ........ Brilliant Jackie, amazing idea. Would love to have seen you construct it! Be fun to be a fly on the wall and see 365 ers at work!

It turned out wonderfully. I really like it. So creative.

@streetlyend - well, suffice to say I probably need to get a life.....!! It was fairly painstaking to get the staples into position and then I'd knock one and the whole lot caved in like dominoes!! A test in patience for sure!
February 11th, 2013  
Clever!
February 11th, 2013  
Great effect
February 11th, 2013

I think this is a fab attempt. At least you're trying new things. I'm resorting to flowers again...which I'm crap at anyway xx
February 11th, 2013  
Fabulous! I really must put this on my "to do" list. Fav!
February 11th, 2013  
That's really creative! And well done!
February 11th, 2013  
That's so fun looking- I can see folks with their little people making a a fun shot out of this!
February 12th, 2013  
@henrir - thanks Henri! I'd like to have another attempt with more staples and experiment with lighting a bit more to get more shadows.... Thanks for fav too ( although it doesn't seem to have registered?)
February 12th, 2013
