Love this challenge from PaperArtsy! How fun to take something apart and use the pieces for a new piece of art!! I decided to use some catalogs I was ready to toss and create an inspiration collage.
Spent an evening ripping up my catalogs with the thought of picking out creative-inspiring words and also long strips to make a woven base.
Black and white strips were laid out vertically and then strips with color were woven thru horizontally. A spot of glue went under each top piece after weaving to hold the stips secure. While the glue dried, I picked out the words to display. Using small cutup pieces of cardboard I attached a background cutout from my quilting catalogs and then glued the words on top of these.
After the glue dried on the background, I stamped on some color and did some embossing.
The woven background was attached to a heavy duty piece of cardboard. Then the words were attached using brads. A raffia ribbon was added to the top for hanging my piece.
It now has a place on a bulletin board where I do my crafting.
Thanks to PaperArtsy for your inspiration on this challenge!
