tiles, beaded board, wooden doors, etc. And I have really
been enjoying reclaiming some of this and turning it into
art. These things are pure escape for me; I don't have to
think too much, and they satisfy my need to construct
something and recycle at the same time. I finished this one
today, working outside in the beautiful weather. It is made
from a 24" square piece of ceiling tin mounted onto canvas
stretcher bars. I collaged ivory parchment paper around the
edges to seal off the sharp sides of the tin. I printed some of
my New Orleans photos in a sepia tone, and added them to
the centers of the tin squares. Then I added the textured
corrogated cardboard strips in the cross shape in the middle.
I sealed it all...rust and everything. It is magnetic, though, and will
hold magnets as a memo board.
I am trying to do several of these and they will be for sale in
the shop. I am putting together a little Louisiana corner, and
there will be some other stuff there, too.
