Elvis on velvet? It's what garage sales are made of. Ok, so maybe it's not highbrow fare found in the Louvre, but, after all, art is in the eye of the beholder, and this particular genre is certainly part and parcel of the "velvet underground" that can trace it's roots of fiber artistry to the 14th Century in the Far East. Elvis may have left the auditorium decades ago, but, fiber arts is here to stay in the earth friendly hit parade of arts and crafts. It is a discipline, but such an individualized one it's a more free form free spirited craft, similar more to improvisational jazz than to a structured symphonic piece.
When cleaning out my garage I found dozens of old tools I never used any more. Solution? Reuse them as garden art.
Using Freecycle, I found free mirrors in my local community from people who wanted to get rid of them without cluttering the landfill. Then, with my newly created garden art, I mixed it up on the back wall of my garden.
