A birthday hat for deviantART's 12th birthday!
The shape of the hat was inspired by topsy-turvy birthday cakes. I used a lot of green being it's DA's colors, and added gold to make it fancy.
Then we've got the 12 for the 12th birthday, some gold paper stars and some extra colored ones for "favorites"/birthday theme, fella being an artist, the DA logo and name, along with a llama, a much deserved happy birthday, some hot glue used like frosting to create a 'beaded' border around the tiers, and lastly, some words representing DA at the bottom (community, passion, creativity, etc.)
Materials: Cardstock paper, printer paper, wire, acrylic paint, and lots of glue.
Just finished this tonight, after celebrating my own birthday!
So, happy birthday DA, and if you guys get a chance, check out the other entries for the contest, they're pretty creative.
