DIY 3D Painting Triangles – Part II

For this DIY-Project I got inspired by Søstrene Grene, which is a Danish chain of retail stores that was created by two sisters, Anna and Clara. They just opened a store in Hamburg, where I went last week. The display window succeeded in tempting me going into this shop. You can find various product categories such as interior design, stationery, gift wrapping, crafts, kitchen goods and toys for children. “Common to all products is an elegant and feminine expression that brings beauty to everyday life, while the prices are always kept at a reasonable level.” Perfect match! I bought some drinking straws for my next DIY 3D painting project.
