Another Way of Taking the Old and Making It New Again

I  know  I'm  not  the  only  one  looking  for  different  ways  to  use  older  art  in  different  ways.   I'll  look  back  at  art  of  mine  from  the  last  couple  of  years  and  feel  that  it  needs  to  come  out  into  the  world  again.   But  I  just  don't  want  to  make  prints  of  them--I  always  want  them  to  be  a  bit  different  from  their  original  way.   And  if  you  read  my  blog,  than  you  pretty  much  know  this.
 
So...this  time,  this  is  what  I  decided  to  do...
 
 
I  happened  to  see  these  frames  at  Michaels--they're  about  8  inches  square,  and  where  you  put  your  image  in  is  about  4  inches--so  I  had  an  idea.
 
I  took  snippets  from  my  art  from  2  different  pieces  (I  had  2  frames)--
 
......and  then  I  took  the  mats  that  the  frames  came  with  and  coordinated  them  with  each  image--
 
 
 
 
 
..and  my  finished  pieces--
 
 
 
These  were  so  fun  to  do,  that  I  did  2  more--
 
 
 
...and  yeah---I'm  working  on  2  more  right  now---now--I  have  to  find  more  frames!

You have such an eye...I know I've said this before, but it's true!

I recently tried printing some of my older works on old dictionary pages as you've done to see what I could do with them. Answer....nothing....haha!
Those pages deliver wonderful color....but, I don't know, I just couldn't wrap my head around the text behind my images...and I usually love that in a piece....haha!

Thank you, as always, for the inspiration! I love that you are always keeping yourself so busy with creative energy and ideas! :)

Hugs,
Cameron
