This is the second month of the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge and this month they've challenged us to use objects from around the house in a new way.
Some of the household items that I used are things that I routinely use anyway like that rubbery shelf paper that make great textures and the cover from an eyeliner pencil to make the small black circles.
In addition to those I used text and the woman's face from a vintage magazine. The image was not colored but the paper was pretty thin and the text from the reverse side showed through more than I liked so I just did a paint over on her. I used a little strip of duct tape from my husband's work bench with more magazine text in the upper right section. Beneath the woman the colored circles are from the edge of some quilt fabric my daughter had used a few weeks ago (yes, I did scrounge through her trash)! The little pocket for my secret dreams is a toilet paper roll that I flattened and stitched on 3 sides and the pocket insert is a section of an old ruler from the junk drawer and had a dream written on the back. And finally, some of the final streaks and dots are made with the tines of a fork.
This was a fun challenge - looking forward to next month.
