A She Art Re-mix

Reading  my  blog,  you  all  know  that  I  like  to  recycle  my  art.   And  that's  exactly  what  I  did  with  my  she  art  girls.   I  took  these  images--


Plus  a  couple  of  new  she  art  "faces"--




And   I  put  them  here--



on  this  mirror!   This  really  is  a mirror.  I  just  covered  up  the  mirror  part--you  wouldn't  want  to  see  my  reflection   when  I  took  this  photo--not  a  pretty  sight   : )

And  since  it's  a  mirror,  I   want  to  remind  anyone  who  looks  into  it--these  daily  thoughts  to  remember--


 

And  when  I  think  of  it,  this  was  a  great  piece  to  make  to  go  with  Christy's  last  lesson.   The  lesson  is  all  about  making  it  personal  by  using  copies  of  personal  letters,  your  children's  artwork,  old  ticket  stubs,  cards  you  received,  etc.    So  wouldn't  this  be  great  as  a  picture  frame  with  your  personal  memorabilia  on  it  and  then  adding  a  family  photo?  Or  how  about  copies  of  brochures,  receipts--you  know  things  that  you  collect  on  a  vacation  that  you've  taken,  like  for  instance --New  York  City  ; )

You  get  the  point--I  think  that  this  type  of  art  is  great  when  it's  personalized.

And  before  I  leave,  I  have  another  giveaway  that  I  want  to  tell  you  about.   Manon,  another extremely  talented artist  is  giving  away  this  beautiful   box--

Gorgeous!!

You  can  go  HERE  to  enter  your  name,  and  look  around  if  you've  never  been  to  Manon's  blog  before--you  will  LOVE!

Diane! How clever. I love the idea you gave of adding memorabilia to the the mirror as well. I wonder where you will hang your mirror? Near your fancy cups and other pictures? Just love it!

Hello Diane! Thank you for the comment you left in my blog. It means a lot to me.

I love the recycling concept. The quotes you placed in the mirror is so fitting.

Diane, I love the remix you did with the She Art you made through the workshop. The frame looks FABULOUS, what a great idea! :)

Lesley said...

I love this recycled frame Diane, it's so important to personalise art sometimes and strangely I have just blogged a journal page where I used bits and pieces collected on a trip to Venice a few years ago.

Cathy Bueti said...

I love how you take old pieces of your own art and move them around to make even more wonderful things. A mirror with affirmations is a brilliant idea! Thanks for heads up about a giveaway and new blog to visit too.

Say It In Color said...

I've never seen anyone create so many wonderful and interesting things as you do....pretty incredible....it just seems to FLOW out of you!!! This mirror is great and I think all mirrors should have the same messages!!! Thank you talented girl!!!! Lovely....and I look forward to the next and the next thing!!! Did you copy the old dog cartoon I have on my blog....like Bob? It must be from the forties as the other stuff it was with from my Mom tucked in that book were the same age!...not sure.....it just reminded me of BOB!

Serena said...

WOW...the mirror is gorgeous and I love the affirmations too! Great job, Diane!
