Wrap Art


This unique way of wrapping gifts reminds me of all those Denyse Schmidt fabric postcards. This fascinates me, of course, because it involves two of my loves: collage and recycling. This is from the Eco-artware newsletter. The artist is John Boak. The article says:

Revisionist wrapper John Boak continues to add new ideas to this tradition with his Wrap Art system, a year-round way to reclaim scraps of paper, plastic, fabric, twine, ribbon or other to-be-discarded items for decorative purposes.
This package was wrapped with two pieces of found paper and two ribbons. The top piece of paper is a promotional poster for Adobe Photoshop from seven years ago. The lower is an indigo proof for a postcard with a rose on it. The blue rectangle and silver initials tag are added on. One ribbon is white gauze; the lower, red ribbon covers the client logo on the rose-postcard paper.

you've been really busy blogging lately. It was great to "catch up" as I often find your ideas stimulate more of my own...
