“The earth without ‘art’ is just ‘eh'”.
For my next trick… One day my husband came home and found me painting a large piece of card stock. Yes, I do all sorts of things with card stock. I was applying metallic paints because I thought it looked good and because I’d received a package that day with some interesting packing material inside. These things were all looking like a possibility to me.
When my husband asked what I was doing I simply replied, “This is going to be great!” Sometimes I get really excited when I dash off in one direction or another without knowing exactly where I’m heading.
I ended up cutting the painted card stock into 2 inch squares. Then I cut some black card stock into 2 1/2 inch squares to use as backings for the painted squares. Then I found a piece of black card stock that was 32×21 inches. These things, along with the packaging material and a glue gun, were the toys I chose for this project. It turned into something I called Copper Quilt. I took a crooked picture of it for this post. Still working on the photography!
I even entered this piece into an art show and received an Honorable Mention! I believe the entire piece costs under $10 for the materials. Sheets of card stock were less pricey the year I made this.
Let me assure you that the vast majority of my creations don’t make it to my walls for display. Let me also assure you that a portion of my culinary creations don’t make it to the “we should have this again!” list. But it’s never too dull around here!
