When I work on my art, I am pretty messy and sometimes my work table is stacked up to 6″ with layers of drawers, stacks of paper and pans of beads. When I finally get the piece finished I have to sort through the mayhem and toss the trash.
Recently I made this mixed media puzzle piece. I had used a black permanent marker to trace the shape of each puzzle on scraps of magazine clippings.
As I was gathering these scraps, I was inspired to do yet another slant on puzzles! So I covered 6″ x 6″ canvas boards with scraps of paper and turn these pieces of “trash” into little mixed wall hangings.
It is so fun to experiment and make something I have never seen before!
