Keep on Keeping On Making Bad Art
I'm just getting to posting photos of art I made at this week's Bad Art Night.
I wanted to make jacked-up pomenades like the beautiful ones I saw here, but not so precious. Bad Art Night was the perfect place to work on them.
I was able to do three in our 7-10 pm time slot. That included punching the flowers and putting them onto the styrofoam balls. The first one I did with bright paper from an ad inside the New York Times magazine. I liked the hot pink and blues. I think it was for a resort down in the Bahamas. At any rate, I used the regulation pearl-head pins.
It took nearly a whole box of those and they are almost $5 per box, so that wasn't going to be a sustainable model.
The blue pomenade is made from flowers I punched from some Thomas Bros. map book pages a BAN attendee gave me. She also gave me some beautiful origami sheets and I used them in two colors (lime green and orange) to make the third pomenade.
I have a large stash of ribbon, so it was easy to find something that coordinated with each pomanade.Oops - now that I look at the step-by-step instructions, I see they don't put a ribbon on them to hang. Oh well. Happy accident.
I really like making these as long as they aren't too pretty.
I also made these random collages using left overs from the punching for the pomenades, which I then glued to some paint chip samples I happened to have lying around.
It was another successful Bad Art Night for me!
