Floating along in a dream boat, gazing at the stars

I made these lovely boats out of shredded newspaper, scrap cardboard, a secondhand embroidered hankie and twigs from the backyard. They were inspired by the dreamy creations of clever American artist Ann Wood.

I actually made the first one as a gift. But when the ambitious sails took me longer than expected I opted for a bottle of wine instead. Lucky, since I'd kind of fallen in love with the little prototypes! They're now floating in my bedroom with the invisible aid of fishing line.
