Making Art from a Newspaper
Today's project is fun. I enlarged a copy of the catalog collage that I made this morning and began clipping all of the positive words out of yesterday's newspaper. The bad news is that there weren't many of them. The good news is that I can set this project aside until the next edition comes and continue my search for a positive spin on everyday things.
It amuses me to combine the catalogs and newspapers that people throw away everyday (we hope they recycle but a lot of people don't) into something that can be used and enjoyed by everyone when I put the design on products in cafe press and Zazzle plus of course the fact that the originals make cool "snail mail" for all of the people that I write to.
