what would someone else make . . .

. . . with the stuff on your art desk?

The other day, the girl child yells from the art room:
"Mom! I'm using all the leftovers on your desk to
make something, okay?"

Fine by me, have at it--maybe it will make things at
least one-layer-of-stuff cleaner . . .

This is what she came up with:



I think it's fun--look at all that stuff! There's
corrugated bits from a coffee cup holder, a padded
envelope, this and that, pieces from projects left
sitting out.

That would make for an interesting swap--
if one person sent their "stuff" to another, and
that person had to make something with it and send
it back. Hmmm. Or just post it to their blog.

ANYWAY, since the daughter doesn't have a blog,
we're posting it here, right?
Gingersnap Creations--Spicy Supply Challenge(packaging materials)
Crazy Amigo--pink!
Shopping Our Stash--SOS (she used silver and Stampin' Up)
Use It Tuesday--punch, die-cut, or cut out
Simon Says Stamp and Show--distressed/torn edges
Stamp with fun--pearls and flowers
Catered Crop Linking Party

So, if I sent you a little envie of bits and pieces,
would you make a something with it and post it to your
blog?

Would you?

I love your daughter's artwork so much. It's so creative what she's done with it all! My particular favourite bit - "CAUTION VERY HOT"!

And YES, I'd have a go at making something with a little envie of your bits 'n' pieces.......... xx

Suze Bain said...

Wow, this is fab - she has such a great eye for design. Good luck with all the challenges. The idea of making something out of someone else's bits & pieces terrifies me - but what a great challenge it would be. xx

hannahbugsmom said...

So talented..just like her mama!! My bits & pieces aren't so cool. Just lots of bills.

Cameron said...

How cute! Looks like she really got into it! My favorite is the pink tissue fringe on top :)

I did a project like this with Sheree at Raven Moon Magic...she sent me bits and pieces to make a doll...and I did the same! Really fun!

Sharon said...

Wow your daughter's work of art is beautiful and good on her for using scraps - LOL I always use scraps I cannot bear to throw away even the most minute piece of paper and am always "fossicking" through my scraps!!!

Nee's Hearts Desire said...

LOVE it!! Wow she did a great job!!

Marjie Kemper said...

She's quite the collage artist. I think a bits & pieces exchange would be pretty cool.

Shelly Schmidt said...

That is an interesting piece of art...nice to see the scraps getting used up instead of being stored in our craft spaces...thanks for joining in the SOS this week

Hey, Hey, Hey, a new artist on the block, and Mom has come up with a fab idea for a new challenge.

Dawn said...

She did a great job and I would sooooo accept that challenge, I think it is a totally awesome idea!

Linda McClain said...

Hee Hee - I love it. I'll have to try that technique some times. Don't you love how uninhibited kids are when it comes to art. Thanks for sharing it with us at Catered Crop.

Jane Izumi Matsumoto said...

I think it's great that you let her have a go at your scraps and this is what she came up with. Quite creative! Thanks for sharing this with us at Use It Tuesday!

Beautiful collage card!!

Lucy Edmondson said...

She did a fantastic job, I love it. I think she must be about my age (!). Only warning, be careful what you leave lying around that she may think are the leftovers - you may lose that special item you have kept for gazing and stroking!

Interesting collage. I like all the bright colors.

Alexa said...

I think she did a fantastic job! Watch out or she may upstage you in a few years!! :)

Haven_mom4 said...

Wish I could let go like you did. Kids in my craft space is a rare occurance, but they do get their fair share of cast offs. TFS @ Use it Tuesday- Haven
