Some tools and materials can be quite expensive. Or you buy something and don’t use it often, it gets dry and should be thrown out. I show you some ideas where all you need is some magazine pictures and glue to upcycle your surroundings.
- Chocolate picture
It was inspired by a chocolate advertisement, I liked the colours and the vibe. I cut the pictures and arranged them, put a dark red paper behind and framed it with a simple frame. The pictures fits in my room, the colour matches my bed and curtains and it took less than half hour to make it.
- Feminine picture
There was an article about the paintings of Mucha and I liked the sensual, feminine atmosphere. I used cracking lacquer to give a vintage look to the background but any patterned paper would do. I glued the pictures on the background and framed it. It hangs next to my wardrobe eversince reminding me of my femininity.
- Little box
I have a little box where I store all the little buttons they give when you buy new clothes. The picture is by a Hungarian illustrator Édua Szűcs, I like her dreamlike drawings. The box got a golden-blue vintage painting.
I collected black and white pictures and decorated an old shoe box with them. It looks vintage and I store old photos in it.
I used pictures of food to decorate these kitchen storage boxes. The result: nex, exciting, colourful, functional boxes.
