Inspiration for Monthly Makers “Loppis”

The new theme for Monthly Makers was released a few days ago, and it really doesn’t translate that well into English because “flea market” sounds like such a weird theme haha. Maybe “thrifted” is a better word? Anyway, that’s kind of what it is. You can head on over to Stina to see the presentation.

I thought I’d put together a post with some inspiration on the theme! I’m thinking a lot about collages and stuff like that for this month, as I kind of just want to interpret in a way of reusing old things/things that were meant to be used for something else!

Below are a few things that are inspiring me! Click the images to get to original!

Ghost photographs by Angela DeaneAngela Deane’s Ghost Photographs. Drawing on found photographs. Amazing.Blackout poem by bokpoesiThis blackout poem by Bokpoesi.This embroidery street art by Raquel Rodrigo. Vilde Rolfsen’s plastic bag landscapes. THESE ARE SO STUNNING I can’t believe they’re plastic bags???

Also, shameless self-promotion – here are a few things I’ve made myself! skapa, jessica andersdotter, collageMountain collage made from old magazines ripped into PIECES. (rest in pieces HEHEHEHE)Thrifted book + thrifted flowers = flower book. Prism by Jessica Andersdotter, 2015. Prism photography, taking pictures through a crystal. And of course you can take pictures through different thrifted things, like an old prism! Yay!

And that was it for this time!

    Yard sale på engelska skulle jag säga! Jag älskar att gå på loppis, det brukar vara många sådana på våren så får se om det blir lika många i år!
    Gillar självporträttet på dig genom prisman och bergs collaget :)
