Aiming Left

What can you do with a cereal box,
some woven magazine pages,
an old collage,
brown kraft from a carton,
a sewing machine
and some paint.

This…

Aiming left and thinking of new ways to re-use
anything I find around the house.

What can you re-use today that you didn’t think of?

    I just got an old dressmaking form at a garage sale and the corrugated cardboard that it came in was wonderfully eaten or worn away in spots so of course I had to save it for a future project.

    Corrine's it!
    already thought and every day we think what we can recycle, would be a breakthrough for the planet!
    look at this suit, a very good work, reusing materials; is very cool! I loved the seams!
    is lively and full of renewed energy!
    a big hug dear!
    cheers!

    I love that you use recycled items in your artwork. I keep saving cereal boxes for covers of books but haven't done anything with them yet… There's no excuses right? Eat your item and then decorate the box or turn it into something even more wonderful than fruit loops!

    Yay! I love recycling in a artsy crafty way!
    i have a friend who tells me that making art with used materials should not be called recycling but upcycling!
    I agree!
    Keep up the good work!
    🙂

    This is great. It is lovely to see your recycling work. I've been using cereal packets as a base for gift tags.
