Find something someone's tossed away, pick up a cool rock, get an idea, make a piece of art. Then build a business around it. That's what these creatives are doing...
Paulaart for example, using cast off metal pipe and scrap to create everything from vases and flowers, to napkin rings and clocks
or LizzieJoeDesigns, where Jennifer knows just what to do with those pesky wine corks that just keep piling up around the house...
How about being able to see something new in something old like these up-cycled dresses put together by Jana at MyFairMaiden?
or find something tossed aside and make it your canvas as you'll find Fleur doing at NYhop.
Pey and Anatol, at folkARTvision find all kinds of bits and pieces to fashion their heartfelt assemblages.
and here's a beautiful use of something that often goes unnoticed underfoot. Elaine of RedorGrayArt, takes rocks and creates beautiful stone paperweights embellished with twine.
Reduce, reuse and recycle is practiced here!
