Big Wheels Keep On Turning

I was making spaghetti yesterday and I was looking at this box and it got the wheels turning.

So I opened it and cut the ends off.

I thought I would use it as is to make something, then the wheels started turning again and I traced it onto aquarelle paper and made this.

Next time, I will make a bigger flap to close it an lighter weighted paper. Prototypes are all about using what's on hand.

I will water color the cover and use this book to experiment with an unusually dimensioned paper.

And below are some sketches I have been doing.

The first is just parts and pieces

This page is my first response to this month's prompt: Highly Prized
