Every time I walk into FLOOF Collage pARTy! I am amazed at all the potential that I feel contained within its walls. The last young girl who came to work with me came away with a beautiful painted heavy cardboard mock-up of a balalaika, a Russian triangular musical instrument, complete with yarn strings and metal struts. All the materials she used were recycled – the cardboard used to be the back of an artists’ portfolio, the strings were vintage yarn, the paints came from a child’s paint set found at a yard sale, and the struts were metallic plastic cut from a hair clip.
I can’t wait to see what my February clients make for Valentine’s Day or during Teacher’s Week when they are off of school.
I’m accumulating a notebook full of design ideas. Today I discovered two ways to make birdfeeders out of embroidery hoops, tuna cans, wire remnants, parts of old screens, beads and sequins.
Come find out how to make outdoor winter art!
