I spent a few hours reinventing.
Interesting things happen when you rummage through your stash.
Experimenting is one of the most time consuming studio activites.
Basically, it is research. Combining, testing & manipulating materials in every which way to see what you can or can't do with them.
Like editing a photo, you have to play around with the effects to see what works, what you like.
reduce reuse recycle rethink reimagine recreate rejoice!
Folding, ironing, trimming, layering, sprinkling, sticking, sewing...
Old wrapping papers, calenders, clippings & cuttings, fabric scraps, words & sparkly hearts now have new life as bookmarks & cool quirky envelopes.
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
