Update on Aesthetics Recycle Project

I have decided that I will be making the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden out of recycled cardboard, paper, and plastic. I am not focusing that much on the colors, but more the different textures of the recycled plastics and papers.  I was also thinking, my house gets an abundance of newspaper ads that we do throw away.  I will be making the specific petals out of the newspaper and hopefully there will be a bunch of different colors on each to make them look unique. I chose this specific place, because I feel like this Rose Garden contains lots of different colors and the architecture is also very elaborate.

I enjoy the pinks with the fountain and the purple’s in the back.

I do not have yet photos to show of my project because I am still collecting newspaper and cardboard, however they will be here soon.

    This can be really cool when done. I’m excited to see how much detail you can put into your recreation.
