One problem with making art is knowing what to do with it after it's done. My house is filled with piles and piles of collages and stacks of almost-finished paintings. But I can't stop creating new stuff.
So I've started giving it away. But I don't want to burden people with unwanted crap -- especially my Etsy customers. What's something that everyone can use and I can make?
Bookmarks! I started by collaging leftover paper bits onto cardboard cereal boxes, then stenciled and dripped paint.
For the other side, I cut up 2 magazine pages into strips, then lined them up and sanded them.
After cutting them into bookmark-sized strips and counting the corners, I attached a few images to each side.
Pretty cool, if I do say so myself!
