Junkalicious!!!

I can see daylight again! Gary and I spent a good part of the weekend trying to really get through the bulk (MOUNTAIN!!!) of the moving boxes. He found most of my art supplies that were packed up for the past 4 months. It was like going shopping all over again!!!

I had to make a Diva Dictionary page for my Altered Divas Yahoo Group. (I wish I had more time to participate in that group; the women are all wonderful.) We had to make up a word and do a 5x7 art piece depicting the word
My word is JUNKALICIOUS...these pages were made with the crap...er, I mean junk, that was sitting in bags in the basement. You know, the stuff you don't know what to do with but hate to throw away??? I used all sorts of junk...old text, a napkin, discarded painted watercolor paper, glittery vellum, green foil wrapped around a slide cover, postage stamps, stamped images that I have NO IDEA where they came from, and puka beads from an old broken necklace. I was living a JUNKALICIOUS moment!!!

Sandee your posting of the word Junkalicious on Altered Designs got me, had to look. This is a wonderful piece and I love the colours. Who knew a pile of junk could look so good. Great work
