Scrap Shacks

scrapshcak2.jpgI have been having a lot of fun playing around digitally with my ephemera and fabric collections, sort of searching for new elements to morph into my illustrated art. I am not sure what I am searching for, but I discovered in the meantime that I REALLY like to make little houses.I guess they combine a lot of things I like in one form. I have been making them in small numbers, giving some away, and I listed a few in the etsy shop, too. All the house innards are made out of recycled cardboard, like cereal and gift boxes. The fabric roofs and bases are all made out of small scraps of fabric that I repurpose, either from old stuff or the detrius of other fabric projects. I really like the idea of making things from nothing.scrapshacks1.jpg
