Not exactly a journal, but it is a repository for memories and that is sort of like a journal!
SO MANY THINGS are packaged in blister packs. The recycle number on these microphone cable packs was a 3 and that means I could not put them in my recycling. The more I looked at them, the more I realized I could probably do some sort of art project with them.
There was the nice niche in the front of the package and then so much room all around the edges. I gathered a few gifted items from my stash (again from my friends Joy and Peng) and also grabbed a jar of seashells Chris and I gathered at Backbay Wildlife Refuge last year.
I placed the shells in the niche and added seed beads and some glass pebbles and some cool fibers. I sealed the niche with a piece of scrapbook paper and that became the focal point of my shadow box.
It was a fun project and I’m working on another one just using things that anyone would have around the house.
I love using items for art that would otherwise end up in the trash.
