Merry #Christmas!!

December 24, 2013

We were given the exciting challenge to create a Christmas tree using only recycled or ‘used’ materials and below is what my interior design students and I came up with….

The tree was created using old boxes for the ‘frame’ and lots and lots of items that we no longer used or wanted, such as toys, jewellery, sunglasses, buttons, old Christmas decorations and even a recorder! Once we assembled all of the items and either glued or pinned them to the ‘frame’ we used metallic spray paint to give it a some Christmas sparkle.

This tree was created with lots of enthusiasm and positive energy and the final result is pretty amazing!

#Art I Love…

I had the pleasure of meeting Brisbane-based photo realist artist today, and as you can see below her works are incredible!! Perhaps most amazingly they’re all created using fine liner pens, which are built layer by painstaking layer.

All pieces feature a colour palette of black and white only, so that you don’t get distracted by the use of colour and can really focus on the work. By far, my favourite artworks in her collection are those featuring skeletons and skulls (below) – they are just full of natural beauty and their form really lends themselves to being reproduced in a black and white colour scheme.

This is a creative way to upcycle a palette. All you need is a little paint, some decorations and your imagination and you have a beautiful Christmas tree!
