The new theme for Monthly Makers was released a few days ago, and it really doesn’t translate that well into English because “flea market” sounds like such a weird theme haha. Maybe “thrifted” is a better word? Anyway, that’s kind of what it is. You can head on over to Stina to see the presentation.
I thought I’d put together a post with some inspiration on the theme! I’m thinking a lot about collages and stuff like that for this month, as I kind of just want to interpret in a way of reusing old things/things that were meant to be used for something else!
Below are a few things that are inspiring me! Click the images to get to original!
Angela Deane’s Ghost Photographs. Drawing on found photographs. Amazing.This blackout poem by Bokpoesi.This embroidery street art by Raquel Rodrigo. Vilde Rolfsen’s plastic bag landscapes. THESE ARE SO STUNNING I can’t believe they’re plastic bags???
Also, shameless self-promotion – here are a few things I’ve made myself! Mountain collage made from old magazines ripped into PIECES. (rest in pieces HEHEHEHE)Thrifted book + thrifted flowers = flower book. And of course you can take pictures through different thrifted things, like an old prism! Yay!
And that was it for this time!
