What do you collect?


Vintage-inspired mixed media canvas

So, I have been a collector of random things for a very long time...my family calls me the "rubbish collector"...*LOL*


But there's a method to my "madness"...it must hold some personal meaning for me [that's my story and I'm sticking to it! *winks*]...like the bow from an old hairclip and the Dior charm from my very first travel make-up kit that I've incorporated on my mixed media canvas for The Crafter's Workshop

I love that the mixed media canvases in my room all incorporate little bits of what I've "collected" over time. What about you? What do you collect?

This is lovely! I collect and keep so many things! I love looking at things and remembering the good times and the amazing people :-) I also collect art supplies, notebooks, wool and vinyl toys....I need help haha!

Just as well you're a 'collector' as opposed to a 'hoarder'!! Cos other wise this would never have gotten made, & it's my favest of all time, cos it has such a vintage, 1930s vibe & I looove that time & the gold & the texture is YUM & the bow is just perfection. I REALLY love this:):)

I knew there was a reason I am attracted to your work. We are rubbish collector sisters. My family can't understand my obsession with junk. You just never know when something will inspire some 'art'...like the marvelous piece you made with the lace and metal.Thanks for sharing your memories via your craft.

Beautiful - love this! I have always collected salt and pepper shakers. I inherited several from my Grandmother and continued to collect. With two children in military families I now have a collection from all over the world.

I believe the term is "hoarder". haha kidding!
I collect postcards from new places I visit. At first it was to beautify my walls and also to feel a sense of accomplishment; but now that I'm downsizing, they're just sitting in a box somewhere. Not quite sure what to do with them...

Shelly said...

As a child I used to collect everything, but I've cut down significantly in adulthood. Now I mostly collect art supplies. :D
