Looking around the studio, I thought there was not much to choose from, but looking at the results, I think the experiment was very successful. I made a variety of lines using just whatever was available.
I highly recommend you try this yourself!
My morning Starbucks drink straw.
I took a little strip of fabric and rolled it up and dobbed it in the paint, that's on the left. In the middle, is the same fabric roll after I frayed it with an Exacto knife. On the right, a cap off my acrylic paint tube.
A Hammer, the harder I hit the more interesting the mark.
A strip of Linoleum with a Jute backing.
A Phillips Screw Driver, the Drink Straw with a cut-tip, and a piece of String.
A Putty Knife.
A Screw (I like the little circles).
A Pointed Stick, Small Pallet Knife, Rubber Tip for Pastels.
A Rubber Finger-tip, a Fork.
A Stem on the left, and a Leaf.
My Valentine's Day Rose....
and then I cut the tip of the rose off, and dipped it in the paint and rubbed it on the paper. You can kind of see the red on the paper. Then I used it as a stamp.
So much fun to be had with just the stuff on hand!
