Hi everyone! I am sorry that I am late with posting, or if in the next few days you will get coverage of several posts at the same time, but I am suffering major troubles with my internet supplier, who also seemed to forget his manners. So the situation is the next I am changing provider and the new installation is ready only next tuesday. So please be patient and live with me the next few days. Hopefully the new company won’t be such a pain than the present.
Talking about the internet trouble, like it would be cut on me Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #16 is asking participants to use some office supplies in their art, oh yeah internet is also an office supply, but how to put it on paper. It came to my mind that how companies can trade is connected to feeds and news. News that’s it, well I tried something old and something new, some facts and some fictions, so an imaginary and an actual office supply spread:
Do you feel like having a coffee and take an official creating walk with me? First I used and “to do list” stamp (unknown origin, simple local office supply company) to stamp with archival ink on my page.
Then I used some newspaper scraps to collage around (someone needs to read the market report, doesn’t he). But of course I couldn’t stop, I had to add some more scraps, a piece of lace (found under my crafting mat), some thread and graphite texture paste.
And there, it hit me, naturally today everyone uses gps to get to work and then types letters on the computer, easy pie, you don’t like it push the delete button. What was before the delete button, does anyone remember it? I tell you, good old fashioned maps instead of gps and real ringing typewriters instead of computers or tablets. So I had to melt everything together and I made a typewriter from a map scrap.
New technology is good for us, isn’t it? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Sometimes I feel like that they just try to pack money out of our pocket trying to convince us that the newer is faster, bigger and stronger. So is it a fact or is it just fiction what the news are feeding us with? That’s why I chose a headline “fact or fiction”, I even framed it with a cardboard piece that I embossed with liquid platinum and added some altered office paper fastener.
I needed a question mark so I applied one and I colored my page with green block print ink.
The one who uses paper fasteners uses paper clips as well probably, so did I!
At that moment I was satisfied I crafted myself out from office and news. Thanks for staying for this official broadcast of the breaknews: fact or fiction…
