Creativity Quote Bracelet

Last semester I created this collaged bangle for my Visual Communications class. The assignment was simple: create something (anything) that visually conveys a specific quote.

I choose this quote by Julia Cameron:

Creativity - like human life itself - begins in darkness
It fit perfectly with my idea of collaging a bangle, because the bracelet, like the quote, symbolizes the circle of life. Then playing off the quote again, I used a graduation of black, grey and white plain and patterned papers as the background. I placed the quote on top then added some stick-on gems for a bit of sparkle.

Then I presented it in this small box surrounded by black tissue paper, as if it were also emerging from darkness.

Thanks Gayle! It was fun working with my hands again after months of designing only on the computer.
