RECYCLED Mixed Media

                                    By Julia L. and Savvy H.
In art class we made mother’s day cards. We used recycled fabric and other materials. We also reused old book pockets left over from the library. We wanted to give our mothers something special but what’s more special than an earth friendly card. Here are some of the materials we used: we used fabric, paper, tissue paper, aluminum foil, ribbon, and a book pocket. We were surprised that everyone in our class was really into it and that we can make such creative things out of reusable things and still show our mothers how much we love them in a brilliant, loving, caring, mixed media way.

Several boxes of unused book pockets were donated to the Art Room.
