Every few months, my friend Nancy comes over and we have Art Day. This means something different every time we do it. Last fall, we worked on 3 dimensional shadow boxes. This past Tuesday, we did mixed media collage type stuff on flat canvases.
Regardless of what we do, we always have a blast, take a leisurely lunch break and laugh at ourselves.
This first collage is a celebration of the upcoming gardening season. I'm not much of a gardener, but I do love flowers. I used a few hardware items that I found at the Restore a few years ago. For those of you that don't know about the Restore, there's probably one near you. It's a great resource for home improvement supplies. Click here to find one.
The next collage is a bit less whimsical. It has an old mail theme. I finally had a chance to use those transparencies I've been collecting. And some old typewriter keys. And some vintage glass gem-type thingies that I now need more of :)
Art Day always refreshes me. I feel like doing more new jewelry designs after an art day diversion.
