Smashed on Sunday: What-ya-got Art Journal
We are a small school & not many ended up coming, but those who did had a blast. We used magazines, art books, catalogues, random sketchbooks & pads of newsprint to make these little books. Mine was kind of used as an "example" but I encouraged them to play and have fun with it so it would be something that they would hopefully actually use. They came up with some great ideas! We used staples & binder clips to hold our books together so it was super easy.
But my point in sharing all of this is to encourage you to play around with the things you have at home. Figure out how to use that junk-magazine that comes in the mail, or figure out what you can do with packing tape. Or ugly staples, how can you make those work FOR you, rather than against you?
Which of course, brings me to the question what you all are working on? Paper things? Baking things? Other kinds of making things? :}
