Sometimes I see something that really knocks the proverbial socks right off my ten little piggies and this mixed media assemblage sent those socks a flying. This clothespin sculpture is from the now out-of-print book Teaching Mixed Media to Children (1995) by Karla Cikanova which I immediately decided I need for my library because I can always wedge another book on the shelf and a book like this could come in handy someday...you know...when I'm teaching a classroom full of children....about....mixed media. So, now I'm obsessed, wasting far too much time scouring the internet for used copies that aren't exorbitantly priced or only available from a bookseller in Australia. In the meantime, I will satisfy my longing by admiring other wonderful images from this book on the equally lovely (and one of my new favorite) blogs: An Ambitious Project Collapsing.
In my thrillingly delusional existence as a world renowned designer, stylist, photographer, writer, flea-market scavenger and tap dancer my wandering eyes chance upon many items of wonder and beauty. This blog is where I share my visual discoveries. Thanks for wandering over and taking a look.
