My incredibly creative and resourceful friend, Missy Trantham, made this beautiful Christmas ornament. There are two things about this ornament that I LOVE.
First, it’s made from a drink coaster that she saved from a recent dinner at Chili’s! Awesome! The coaster makes a very sturdy base for collage and stamping.
The second thing I love about this ornament is that the primary image itself was taken from the front of a book of stamps. You know how every book of stamps always has a large sticker of the stamp image on the front of the stamp booklet? That’s the one–how creative! Using FREE stuff that we have sitting around is something that I find truly inspiring, and Missy is always finding creative ways to re-use and up-cycle unexpected things in her art.
Missy always makes things that are so interesting and unique. She has such a great eye for color and composition. Isn’t the background cool with the columns of numbers and handwritten text? She even put a tiny butterfly sticker that sweetly covers the printed price in the upper left-hand corner.
She left me a coaster last night, so I’m excited to see what I can do with it–
Thank you, Missy, for sharing this lovely piece of artwork!
