I found a post on design*sponge featuring the artist Ann Wood. The post featured Ann's original design for a D.I.Y. tutorial on making a stampede of wild horses. I had much too much fun with this tutorial and I whipped up four pretty ponies to hang above my bed.
These scraps were the basis for all of my ponies, cardboard cereal boxes, origami paper, newspaper, an old maps.
Notice that the legs are put together with buttons? I have a very limited button supply which is why I wish I bought that bowl of buttons at the art trail this weekend, oh well.
I am rather pleased with the outcome, here is the original tutorial.
