...renew, upcycle - whatever you call it, making the old into new is a passion of mine.
I've turned dryer sheets into curtains ,
|'I Should Have Listened to Mom' cafe curtains|
a damaged child's board book into a colour fix,
discarded wine bottles and glasses into table art,
cigar boxes into keepsakes,
empty paint tubes, beer bottle caps, vintage hair clips and outdated costume jewellery into paintings,
wine and beer bottle caps into gardens,
torn and pages-missing soft cover books into a table sculptures,
and the list goes on and on. My
passion obsession for making the most of things means that I look at everything with an assessing eye, knowing it could be something entirely different. (Don't worry, John, you're safe . . . so far.)
Word has it that there is going to be a Trashion show here in town in May, where artists are encouraged to turn trash into fashion. Anybody got any used dryer sheets they can spare? I feel some new clothes coming on.
