Twinchies1

Using 2” pieces of cardboard thanks to an empty Wheat Thins box… I up-cycled my trash to treasures. There’s everything from text pages to paint chip scraps adhered to the cardboard with tiny collages created on each.

Each is it’s own adorable little work of art. I used everything from tassels to chipboard, straight pins to buttons, and silk flowers to mini clothes pins… and tons of imagination. The possibilities are limited only to your creativity. Try some!

I mounted all of the minis on a wooden plank that I adhered vintage sheet music to. I topped that with tissue paper and then used an array of colors and glimmer mists to add depth and shimmer to it. As you can see it truly turned my trash into a treasure that I gave me mom for her lavender bedroom.

TwinchiesBasket

A tisket, a tasket… some twinchies in my basket. I got an idea while surfing Pinterest for making twinchie collages. I’m going to group them on a canvas for some wall art for my mom. She has no idea that I’m doing this for her… the Be Still painting will also be for her. The spring weather is inspiring me and helping me take my mind off myself.

These are a few in progress. I’m now up to five completed and working on three more. I’m not sure yet how many I’ll need for my canvas but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. I’ve cut 2” squares from an empty cracker box and am layering papers, ephemera , trims, and a plethora of other goodies on these mini pics. I think this is going to turn out delightful!

Taking these baby steps into my land of creative healing is helping!  Stay tuned!
