Have Stuff Hanging Around Needing a New Life or a New Home?
Its been years since I first bagged up some plastic box strapping. The idea is to use the material as stays, and in found object art pieces. Out of nowhere on Mother's Day at 4 AM, there I was cutting strapping pieces while the hot glue gun warms up. Cutting the edges of the pages is a task and a half. The paper in the spine parts is still shedding.
This is what I made.
"Reference," Found object art
Mostly likely I will add objects, and maybe a bit of paint. The bottom
will have a stand to match the top. It is made from an old pressed board
shelf piece, old falling apart books, leather from an old purse, and a
broken apart frame. The paper will be sprayed with a matte finish sealant when the weather is warmer. The paper absorbs the spray, as in takes longer to dry.
