Recycled art


First I have to say I am a "taking notes-test colour" addict.

I had to make a few cards for a local store that sells handmade artists items and had completely blanked out of ideas.
Going through my notes, thinking "this is hopeless", I thought I'd might as well leave it for the day.
After a cup of tea, and talking it over with the olive tree on my veranda, everything started making sense: I could make my notes into cards. I have loads of them, just sitting there...why not?
So I teared some pages from my note books, and collaged a little...and I had loads of cards ready in one afternoon...
