“Thousand origami cranes in a thousand days” was the super ambitious goal for Paper artist Cristian Marianciuc from Romania, which he set out in the year 2015 and he has never looked back since then.
Since achieving this goal, Marianciuc continued crafting the cranes, culminating in an increasing collection of equally elaborate and progressively experimental paper sculptures.
Marianciuc’s cranes showcase his eye for detail, creative use of color, and imaginative approach to traditional origami. Without having the pressure of filling a quota or meeting deadlines, though he can play around with his artistic approach, setting each piece aesthetically apart.
While Marianciuc has divulged that he’ll soon begin a mini-series inspired by Japanese folklore, he has also assured that he has no plans of quitting his crane practice.

Mom, Alya Chaglar, 31-year from Antalya, Turkey, found her joy in creating her daughter’s dresses from the daily produce and flowers while capturing them on camera. While the 3 years old daughter, Stefani, enjoys modelling.
“It all started with a watermelon, when Alya held a slice up to her daughter, who was standing in the distance and the picture of the then 2-year-old came to life,” she told HuffPost. “She struck a pose spontaneously and her facial expression was hilarious,” she added.
She started posting pictures on her Instagram, and it became a routine for the duo. They now have quite a good (more than 43k) followers on Instagram. Their pictures are not only cute but filled with creativity.
Chaglar said they do a shoot whenever Stefani is an “artistic mood” and Chaglar has a good idea for a “dress.”

Sawa, a Japanese Instagrammer starts her day with a good cup of coffee. But there is something she creates very unique work of art everytime she enjoys her coffee.
In her ongoing series called La Fee De Fleur, Sawa arranges fresh and dried flowers around the cup in an eye-pleasing crescent shape. Afterwards, she documents the ephemeral coffee art and shares it online, where it’s sure to perk you up with its exquisite colors and textures.

Artist Sam Barsky, rather than buying a t-shirt or a souvenir from a gift shop as majority of people do, does something very unconventional. He brings his own hand-knit, postcard sweaters of the locales he’s visiting.
In 2013, for instance, the Baltimore resident traveled across the pond to see places like Stonehenge and London’s Tower Bridge. To celebrate, he created garments that depicted each place. He then had his picture taken in front of them, all while wearing the sweaters. This meta move is very unusual, but it’s an endearing way to chronicle his travels.
Barsky has been knitting for 17 years, and he started when he was at a crossroads in life. “I have a learning disability and also a neurological disorder that makes me tired and weak at times,” he told The Yarn Loop. “In 1999 it forced me to leave nursing school—at first I didn’t know what I was going to do.” He learned the craft from the owners of a local yarn shop. “They agreed to teach me how to knit on the condition I buy their yarn. To make a long story short, I’ve fulfilled my yarn buying debt to them and a lot more!”
After first knitting two solid-colored sweaters, Barsky wanted more creativity in his garments. Unable to find something that suited him, he realized that he could “just try to knit a sweater without a pattern.” It was a success and launched Barsky on his long journey to illustrating natural wonders, bustling metropolises, and even creepy crawlers. Each sweater is completely unique—all told, he’s made almost 90 of them, with no plans to stop. We’re looking forward to seeing where his knitting takes him!

Stan Munro, a big fan of architecture, though not a student has first build a Toothpick City and then a Toothpick World which is in the 2015 Guinness Book of World Records for the tallest toothpick structure: Burj Khalifa, Dubai (16ft.) entirely made out of toothpicks.
Stan learned everything through books, the internet, History Channel, and a little something called “8th-Grade Algebra.”
Toothpicking has been a hobby since his 5th grade art teacher brought a toothpick project to the classroom. Stan stayed with it, and almost 30 years later. Stan makes a living at it.
10 years ago, when his wife Suzi was suffering with some kidney liver disease and he had to stay home caring for her, he started toothpicking. In 2006, he sold his first Toothpick City exhibit to a museum in Spain. Suzi is getting better day by day and who is Stan’s inspiration, his muse, and the center of his world. They are located in Syracuse, NY.
He completed Toothpick City 1 (A History of Skyscrapers), which had 50 of the world’s tallest buildings, in 2005.
After its sale he decided to start work on Toothpick City 2 (Towers and Temples) which will have 40 buildings made out of four million toothpicks and 170 litres of glue.
It includes the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame in Paris, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the Parthenon in Athens.
So far Stan has created more than 100 unique masterpieces consisting famous structures from around the world which are entirely made out of toothpicks.
Toothpick Worldis a traveling exhibit – unlike anyone has seen before. It is a collection of more than 60 famous buildings from around the world–ALL built to the same 1:164 scale, and all out of toothpicks. It can be set up in any configuration, and in a number of different museum spaces. Toothpick World is a sensory experience of engineering, architecture, culture and just plain craziness. It ABSOLUTELY has to be seen to be believed.
In March, 2012, Stan formed Toothpick World, LLC, a traveling exhibit corporation. The purpose of the exhibit is to entertain, educate, and even enlighten, as museum-goers see what one man can do with a little imagination, a whole lot of time, and more than 3 million toothpicks.

Haruka Misawa, a Japanese designer, reproduces the delicate alluring paper flowers through the simple act of sharpening a pencil. Curled up in a ring-like crown, the fragile paper objects assume the shape of tiny floral petals, with colorful details radiating from within the cylindrical form.
Misawa first created a series of custom, pencil-like forms using layers of tightly-rolled tinted paper on printed biotope gafs with a color gradation. Misawa applied paste to the surface of each sheet and wrapped it around a core, forming a tube-like shape. Finally, the designer — using an ordinary stationary tool — carefully sharpened the paper rods to create thin, spiraling sheets, whose delicate materiality resembles floral blooms. While these ‘pencil’ shavings measure between 15-40 millimeters in diameter, a close look reveals a sense of the textural properties of the individual paper sheets. ‘depending on how you sharpen it, the shavings may be thick and heavy, or so thin as to be almost transparent,’ the designer describes. ‘you can’t make the same flower twice. once you’ve created one, you’re bound to try again.’
