Today I'm sharing an idea for making art from old bus tickets! I wouldn't call it a tutorial as such, since there are no special techniques to reveal, other than that of cultivating the strange impulse to hoard bus tickets!
For about a month my bike was broken. I kept forgetting to take it to the bike shop during its opening hours. It languished in the garage at work and I became a connoisseur of the local bus system! (This was rather costly, as you may notice from the some of these images!)
Sketchbook Project (see top of this post) and have plenty left over for decorating card and letters and incorporating into other designs! And I've ordered a test swatch of fabric from Spoonflower, since I thought the summery, 1980s seaside feel of these patterns/colours might make a good print... It reminds me of a circle skirt I had as a little girl. And all thanks to bus tickets!
You may already know that I love salvage and using things that would normally be thrown away. I have a guest post coming up very soon on Painting Bliss full of ideas for recycling random bits and bobs - be sure to check it out!
