Just a little something....

I picked these up at Scott's the other day.....3 for 25.00.

I am sure that he just made them by cutting things out of a magazine and using glue.  Looks like old book pages.  Why didn't I think of that?????  Anyway, I scooted up to Michaels with my 40% coupon to look for something to frame them with.
Ran across these shadow boxes [3 for 10.00] but 6.00 after 40%!  Score.  I had some french linen left over from a chair recover.  I took out the back and hot glued the linen around it.  Then I used double sided tape for the "artwork"....

I think it took about 15 minutes to do the whole project.

Pretty cute for 31.00 total.....Hmmm....how can I make something like this with other objects?  Anyone?

I have seen something like this done with old buttons - it was beautiful and I think last time I went to Scott's (a few years ago) they had a vendor selling old buttons already mounted on a heavy paper in really cool patterns! Looks great!

I see a "goodwill" trip coming on! Just go to their books section and you will find tons of old books and magazines and then your creative juices will flow....

Sherry these look great and black and white anything is my favorite, these have such character. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and taking a peek at my herb pots, they are doing well so far. I am sure I can kill them if I try but since they are so cheap I will just replace them,hehe. Have a good weekend, kathysue

I too saw these at Scott's on Friday....I had them in my hand until an antsy husband caused me to put them down and walk away. I am so glad they found a great home. They look AWESOME!!! Next month, the husband stays home. haha

Kayla....my husband used to like to go to Scott's with me when we were first married! I am SO glad he lost interest in doing that!! I am sure that he will still have them next month and you can scoop up a few!
