Mixed Media Monday - Repurpose/Recycle
Well, over at Mixed Media Monday I'm "it" again as hostess - I love having so many guest hostesses - but it's nice to have an occasional turn as well :-) I chose "repurpose/recycle" as so many of us like to alter things. Then I was left wondering what to do. I have a house full of things "to alter some day", but nothing inspired to me. In the end, I was flipping through Issue 18 of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and saw the spoons that were altered using alcohol inks, and that is what inspired me. Of course I had to be different, so I gave the spoon a face, a crown, wings and some beads. If I can think of a way to hang her, she'll hang by my desk - I was going to use magnets, but my son reminded me of the close proximity of the computer.
