Pack Rat Tuesday

Objet d'rat #3, those pesky credit card offers that include a fake credit card for 'YOUR NAME HERE':

I figure that they'll make good covers for some miniature books someday.

But how about those room divider screens?

Exhibit A, here's a screen being cut loose from its frame.

Exhibit B, the pile after a whole bunch of screens have been cut loose from their frames, and plus the backings from the plexi sheets:

Exhibit C, here the screens have been mounted on, eh, the screen:

I am, obviously, not anywhere near finished; I'm just 2/3 way through the first screen. It still needs 30 more holes filled. Then I do the exact same thing with the other screen, only with different, eh, gocco screens.

So funny...I've also been saving those credit card thingies for book covers.

I bet it's a popular 'collectible' among artists...I wonder if there should be a call to artist for an exhibit on books made with those cards?

I hope you're not keeping Exhibit B for future pack rat Tuesday! The screen look huge! Where are you putting them? I think it looks pretty good now.

As a matter of fact, I DID consider saving Exhibit B for something, but no, in the end, they went into the trash. In fact, the pile was so big that I just brought the garbage can in from the garage and dumped them directly in. (How unsentimental of me.)

i use those credit cards as gocco screen scrapers during classes.

i'm really looking forward to the screen when it's finished!
