All about the 'functional' art

I'm ready to repurpose my cork boards from the Salvation Army. One will be cut up and used in my frames. The other will be cut into 4 pieces since I want to make a set similar to my initial cork boards. Each will be 10" x 10". I'll be mounting the pieces onto board and stenciling them. I ♥ creating functional pieces like the stenciled cork boards!

Since I may keep working with cork and stenciling, this set will have text plus a small embellishment then I may try stenciling designs onto cork for my next round. This time I'm using Gill Sans Ultra Bold instead of Helvetica Neue.

Here's the draft of my next round of cork boards...

Project Update

I got some good news this weekend - a bunch of my pieces at Favourite Unique Gifts and Accessories sold. Super kewl! A few of my pillows found happy homes plus a bunch of the iPhone sleeves. Feels great to know my kookie projects are appreciated!

Now that I've dropped off my coffee sleeves and latest iPhone sleeves, I need to make tea sleeves since some people apparently don't drink coffee. Hard to believe - I can't get through the day without coffee! I'll add tea sleeves to my project list - as always it is LONG!

This week I'm making the love-themed pillow covers so I can drop them off in time for Valentine's Day... And then get the cork boards done. These will hopefully make there way into Favourite as well.

Here are a few of the iPhone sleeves I dropped off this weekend...
