A few days ago I went through my stash and donated a bunch of unwanted and unused art supplies and ephemera. In the process I unveiled some hidden treasures. Just over a year ago I bought a few rusted tin tags from a supplies shop on Etsy. They sat idly until now. Yay for quaint, old, "unshiny" stuffs.
While trying to figure out what Cyndi Lauper was talking about in the super catchy She-Bop I pulled out the magazine and assorted scraps. (I figured it out, hence the title. I'm always the last to know these things...Favorite Guy clued me in to the Frankie says, "Relax" secret just a few years ago.) I constructed this fun little piece of bliss. Perfect for decorating a cubicle, cork board or a large shadowbox. Isn't it sweet? Found images: bird cage , Fox terrier with tin; courtesy of Real Simple magazine scraps. Yay for upcycling!
I started a few other collage pieces while on my musical junket through the 80's and 90's. I also noshed on far too many Twizzlers. Y'know, they don't taste even remotely cherry-like, I have to say the flavor is decidedly Twizzler. There really is no other apt descriptor for them. Anyway, I feel much better. And you, how are you this glorious Thursday?
