I decided to remove the google friend icons from my sidebar since it is going away sometime this month. I can't remember the actual date. You can follow me on Bloglovin if you choose to by going here. I also have a link in the sidebar.
I love it when I find new ways to use art supplies or to be able to alter something I made previously. This happened by accident the other day.
A few years ago I made a series of artist trading cards(ATC's) out of a cereal box. I used a couple of them but I really didn't like the color they were. The shade of green is really odd. I found this one when I was cleaning up my collage drawers. I was going to toss it when I got an idea. I pulled out my gelatos and added some color to the background.
Just a little bit of blue and yellow on top and now the color sings. This was so simple I was amazed. Now this one is a different card because I hadn't stopped to take a before picture.
I then threw this collage element on top and I have the start of a wonderful ATC. Now I want to find what I did with the other cards. They must be stuck somewhere in my studio. I think it would be fun to add different colors to the same background and see what you get. So far I only found one card but they are here somewhere. I'll do another post on this when I find them.
Do you find ways to repurpose your art or your supplies?
