Enjoy the ride...


Front view
Hello friends..How r you ? Enjoying the weather ? No...
No probs just hop on to my bicycle..n Enjoy the ride to Spring Season...
what ? You don't believe me ..Hey the bike actually moves check this out...

Slider bicycle in action

 I got it..you want to have a closer look at the bicycle..to check if its strong enough...:(

close up of bicycle/bike
See the bicycle can even fly..its SUPer bicycle and Its very sturdy..I have used bottle caps for the wheels, colored them with bright neon green,placed a circle cut from black chart paper and a flat wooden bead in the center of cap.Tied a thread around the cap to make spikes.Made the rods and handle with rolls of black chart paper and used a tight coil for seat.The bike is 3 dimensional.

card lying flat
You can see clearly in above snap.did you spot the safety pin used ? Its between the rear wheel and paddles.May be this photo of incomplete bicycle will give an idea ..

incomplete bike arrangement
The wooden beads over the wheel was after thought as it looked unfinished.Done with checking the strength of bicycle?? then lets move on with our ride..

card inside
Isn't is a very cheerful scene ?

spring scene
Everything hand-drawn n painted with water colors.If you are wondering why the birds are siting on ground and not on trees? they are searching for food.(or may be discussing how to hide the slider mechanism ;) )

news paper grass

The grass was cut from news paper and colored with water colors..if you have stayed this long reading my blabbering then.I am sure you can bear some more :D .Forgot to mention  about the weird flowers made using mirror and jute twine colored with water colors.

Whats reused ?
Bottle caps,wooden beads from old hair accessory ,news paper,twine and acetate from an invite.

DO tell me if enjoyed the ride or not ?
