The flea market vendor said he thought they use to be pieces of a beaded doorway curtain.
Later that day, I sat in my craft studio looking at them, asking myself what these little pieces might become. It dawned on me that I had some vintage scraps of lace that were all disorganized in a Ziploc bag. I thought they would be well used as little spools for my lace.
I recently discovered transfer paper. It makes it so easy to transform fabric into something really special to use in art projects! I especially love the look of old text or pics transferred onto linen.
Check out these other creations made with great, random things:
Are these typewriter keys? I'm not sure but old typewriter keys do make a great item to incorporate into an art project.
Use some old bottles, vintage jewelry and maybe even some great ephemera to create a beautiful way to store buttons, bath salts and more! These bottles were created at an event called Silver Bella. Its an event in Omaha, Nebraska where people come together from all over to take part in a weekend filled with various art workshops taught by some of the best in the art community. Sounds neat huh?
I love how this piece incorporates an old playing card and pages from an old book.
