Default MIX303 Trash to Art (11-16-18)

Hostess: MariLynn
Challenge Title:Trash to Art
Keyword: MIX303


I know I am not alone when it comes to getting junk mail. I had a large amount of political ads. Do you even look at the junk mail or does it go straight to the trash or recycle bin? Why did I keep mine? Often I think we are afraid of trying new techniques, because we don't want to waste our paper. There is something freeing about trying new techniques on trash, because I guess in the back of my mind I'm thinking, "Well, if it doesn't turn out I can just throw it away. It was already junk."




I did some painting, gessoing, die cutting, embossing, texture paste. I just had fun playing with my art supplies.

That is what I want to challenge you to do. I want you to just have fun. Use that junk mail. Transform it into art. Just use more than one medium for it to count as mixed media. BONUS points if you use political junk mail like I did.

Use the keyword MIX303 for your project so it will show up in the gallery.

Beautiful cards, MariLynn. Thank you for the early post, much appreciated as I can at least get a page gessoed before work.

I am so there with you. I save lovely papers, interesting pictures, and good quotes from junk mail, store bought packages, tissue boxes, and more. I hope to play today, as we have 6 inches of fresh, heavy snow, with more still falling and I am not going anywhere.

This was a very fun experiment and I am always thrilled to see recycling incorporated in our creations. Thank you, MariLynn

Such a fun idea MariLynn!! I love how your cards turned out. I thought I could give it a try, but it didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. I will try to remember this technique. Thanks for being our hostess!! Sports Flakes by Luv Flowers - at Splitcoaststampers
