At first glance, these two pieces might look like pages from a scrapbook.
The first one uses a comical sticker passed out at a home show a few years back. I ask you… what else was I to do with it?
Inspired by the colors of the sticker, I searched my stash for bits that would keep the palette crisp.
Don’t Drown! It will Spoil Your Day! Choose Joy!
Freddie the fish clearly wants to save us from the fate of drowning! You’re right, Freddie, it would spoil our day! 🙂 We should all heed his warning! 🙂
This next piece began with a torn remnant fabric tag from Hobby Lobby. The royal blue and orange just made me HAPPY! 🙂 (Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!) 🙂
What is it with me and ORANGE these days?
The colors gave me, not only the palette, but the title as well; Royal Orange Dream.
A reversed Field and Stream clothing tag and long saved tickets joined with bits of tape, stickers, a painted brad, an odd bit of trim and a lone button to carry on the palette. Lots of ink gave a colorful base on which to stitch the bits.
Trash Po mail art fit for a scrapbook??? Hmmm….
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
