Day 342: I was trying to make a paper crane, which I have made before, but I guess I forgot how. I ended up making a bug like object with parts of a woman's body on it. I actually like it, though I don't know what it's good for.
Day 343: I was asked to teach a couple of recycled art classes at one of the high schools here in Taos. I had seen pictures of frames made using a technique I thought was really beautiful and I thought the kids could have some fun with it, so I tried it out. This frame is made on a cardboard base and decorated with magazine pages that have been rolled into reeds. I had a blast making this and loved how it turned out.
Day 344: I made another frame using the same technique. I just glued them on in a different way.
Day 345: While at the high school hanging out with the kids while they made their own awesome frames, I made this. I guess it could be a coaster or a mini piece of art. I like the mostly black and white look of this one.
Day 346: I made another collage. I felt like I was playing, tearing and gluing magazine pages.
Day 347: I wanted to make a wallet out of a cassette tape. I took it apart and took out all the insides, then I glued a picture to each side. That's as far as I got. I like the side with the woman on the phone, because I think it's funny the hole ended up being right over her eye.
Day 348: Getting a headstart on Valentine's Day, I made a few recycled magazine hearts.
Day 349: A note to myself.
