The eighth Craft Barn lyrics or quotes challenge came out today. I checked before I went to sleep, and decided on the word I would use would be HURT, mainly because all the DT examples were Knowledge. Of course, those of you who know me, or follow along on my blog, know that I'm a positive person, with no room for pain or emotional baggage. So finding a good quote was priority # 1, and finding something I could use recycled materials with was priority # 2.
Once again, I started with one of my used file folders cut in half lengthwise. To that, I glued a background of Tootsie Roll Pop wrappers, things most people would throw in the trash after consuming the candy.
For the detail shots, I cut hearts from red Tootsie Roll Pop labels that I outlined using a Sharpie marker.
To set the CB 8 apart, I used a shiny wrapper I found in my stash.
I added a chocolate image to this heart.
I continued with the red raspberry wrappers I turned into hearts until I came to the
word "hurt." In case you can't read it, here is what it says.
All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.
~Charles M. Schulz
Although he died in early 2000, I’m sure most of us remember this cartoonist who gave us such Peanuts characters as Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, and Lucy, who, like me, thinks everything should cost 5 cents.
Today is Day 21 of 22, which will culminate in my bEARTHday. For this prompt and subsequent artwork, I recycled 10 candy wrappers and half a file folder. I also used two magazine images. I hope you have/had a super Easter and get ready to celebrate Earth Day.
Thanks for visiting, and your continued support. Once again, although I was extremely late getting to many of you, I visited everyone who signed up for the 7th CB challenge. If I didn't leave a comment, it's because I'm not a member of your venue.
