One of my favorite ways to use up the “junk” on my studio desk is to collage it all up! And, thats exactly what I did for this project.
To get started, I grabbed the binder ring from the mini book included in this month’s kit, and a couple of the old bingo cards.
I then just started layering up lots of bits…
Under paper from my desk, chipboard pieces from the kit…
I even took the plastic packaging from the flair badges in the kit, filled it with sequins, stitched it on, then hung some ribbon (that I dyed using the simmer paint from the kit) from it! What a fun addition to this collage!
Lots of paint, plenty of stitching, some face sketching, a couple of feathers, and some splatters pull it all together!
A magazine clipping inspired the title… “Wise.”
Now, all I need to to is frame it up in a lovely shadowbox and hang it!
I love turning “Junk” into something pretty!
Have fun getting junky today!
