Journal 52, week 16: Recycle Day

I had to laugh when I saw Chelle's 16th prompt at Journal 52 this week was recycled art.

I call this one Recycle Day.  As always, I began with a used file folder I cut in half lengthwise.  I added shimmery acrylic paint that barely showed because I only painted the middle of the file folder.

I originally started this collage with a patriotic theme in mind.  However,

it quickly morphed into me digging through my scraps file and finding things that made me smile and represented who I am.

I used staples throughout to hold the parts together.  The final assembly was glued to the file folder.

This is Day 20, and I dipped into my scraps to find many disparate pieces that represent who I am.  Thanks for visiting, because this is the only place (and day) you will see my Recycle Day collage.
