What good are they on a shelf? I never use paper plates or plastic etc. even in the #nashpadartroom I take cleaning up just as serious. I hit Goodwill & even use family heirlooms while creating. It”s part of my process. Just like creating an art room is part of me being able to sit down & do art.
I wanted to Create something that I could use & then one day pass down. It all started w/a $1 Hardbound book from the $1 store. I had seen Jeane Oliver rip out the pages of a book to then use the binding for a Mixed Media Journal. One of my fav things to do is to re-purpose not just physical objects, but ideas! I have learned in the art world online, at least with the Mixed Media Circle I have found myself in, it’s ok to learn something new and then incorporate it into something you can do.
