More crinkly blue, red and brown paper; green fabric, snap strips and acrylic paint and mod podge made up this 8" X 12" page!
Saturday morning we left the house around nine a.m. and drove into a very foggy road...looking for possible garage sales. It was cold out, we bundled up and sure enough other crazy people were out looking for stuff too and there were those who were selling it just for us! I found this tiny pink monkey for 50 cents at the thrift store. Brand new! My 5 yr old grand daughter will see it as the baby to her little bit larger favorite toy monkey, Mono. Can't wait to give it to her!
I got two wooden cigar boxes to use as art substrates...idea gleaned from Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. So stay tuned. Not sure how long it will take me to take up this self imposed challenge, but am sure I will get to it eventually. $1.50 each box.
The little bag of perfect sea shells were at the thrift store $1.50.
This wonderful Italian post card was inside one of the cigar boxes. So I considered it an extra prize! Doesn't it make you wonder about the lives of these brave souls? Who made it through the war? Who loved them and worried about them? They look young and venerable to me.
I picked up this little pot at the thrift store ($3) to use to melt beeswax in for future art making too. Another new (for me) technique I want to use this year. A garage seller had the two rolls of shiny turquoise and silver papers perfect for art work, which I got for $1. The little note book (brand new) for a quarter will make a great art journal.
And the colorful hair bands also new for 50 cents will either be good for GD or art or both.
Do they need words? Do I write on them?
Not sure yet. What will the next one look like?
Time will tell.
for the next Traveling Art book!
If you'd like to put the word out on your own blog for others who might be interested
and link them back to my blog we'd be much appreciative.
Thanks if you feel like doing this. Fine if you don't.
;-)) Enjoy Your Saturday!
