I have dabbled in altered art. I have done just a few things to try my hand at it, given inspiration from many many many blogs and some of my scrappy friends on line. I am mainly a lay out girl to be quite honest with you, but there is so much out there now in the scrap book community that is more then just lay outs. All of this altered art popping up all over the place. Altering cigar boxes, or bird cages, lamp shades, anything that someone can get their hands on and get their creative juices flowing to alter I have seen on line. There are wonderful pieces of art out there but my question is.........what do you do with it when you are finished?
That is my problem. I have done a couple of canvas's just for the fun of it. I have altered a dress form, and I have altered a box. Everything that I have altered now sits in my room either in a drawer or on a shelf collecting dust.
I have decided that I am not going to waste my time dabbling in altered art anymore because I dont do anything with the pieces that I create, so why create them?
What do you do with your work? Do you display it on a shelf, do you give it away as gifts, do you sell them at crafts shows? I dont have the room to continue to make sure that sits around. The good thing about scrapbooking is that I do a lay out and it goes in an album.
