Is this a joke?
A pizza box, a take-out bag, and a thrift store frame walk into a…studio! You may think we’re headed into a disaster of an upcycle episode with the trash in hand, but I hope you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Hint: the trash was attractive to begin with!
What do I have in mind?
Every time I collect trashy treasures, I spend at least half of my time on the following upcycle episode simply concocting a plan. The brainstorming usually happens before I fall asleep at night. The next morning, I’m rummaging through my stash of materials to see if I can piece everything together.
Planning for this episode was no different, other than the fact that I scrapped much of my plan at the eleventh hour. The undertaking was simply too large-scale, and I didn’t have enough, well, pizza box. I scrambled to come up with a new plan and get to work asap. And so I did.
Is this cheating?
Anyone new to the upcycle game (like me, admittedly) might ask, “Is this cheating?” I’m referring to adding art supplies to an upcycle project. I remind myself that, without these additional materials, there would be no art, and my trashy treasures might remain uncollected.
Adding resin has become my guilty pleasure during upcycling. Doesn’t it bring a sparkle to these trashy treasures?! Tune in to this week’s upcycle episode, and let me know what you think in the comments below. I hope this week’s upcycle makes your eyes twinkle!
Thank you for coming along on this and future Ecopsyched! adventures with me!
