Back to the drawing board.... The drawing board again was Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse. The bulk section is a wealth of materials and, as the name suggests, there is often a lot of it. This trip I paused in front of the CD bin. Could I affix round paintings to a CD? How would I hang it? I loaded up a bag, on the way home, my mind was churning out ideas. Designs, connecting them to make bigger designs, I was excited to get started.
Paint, cut, affix, drill, varnish, hang... It worked and they were a big hit during the holidays! Here is the direct link to my current inventory in my Gallery/Shop.
Months later I was looking for something that would fit a more traditional rectangular shape. This time I noticed some plastic corrugated lawn signs. Sadly, these were not in the bunk section. But I grabbed a few, so I would have enough for experimenting.
This worked too. How exciting! There was a wealth of signs, especially post-election. So many of them are specific to the person, office and year. They do not have a future use for the candidates. My first round of signs came from history making group - Sharpsburg for All.
