Getting Chunky



I just finished doing a 4 X 4 chunky page. Something new for me to do and I quite enjoy having the extra space compared to the ATC's. I made this one for a swap and added the legs that could fold up.



I ran across this chunky duck! Isn't he a wonderful piece of trash? To think that many things would have ended up in a land fill and everything was repurposed to a wonderful piece of art! I wish I could give the artist credit for this, but unfortunately I don't know who:( Isn't it a great piece though? I was thinking that perhaps I should start with a found object and cover it in glue. I could then roll it around my junky studio table that is filled with bits and pieces to come up with my own chunky statue! Hmmm...wonder what I could cover...... here kitty kitty!!!

Your 4 X 4 turned out great!! Love the striped hose. What a great idea to repurpose odds and ends.

Hi Wandy!
As always I am so glad I dropped by for a visit. I love the duck! Very interesting and so much to look at. You made me laugh when you mentioned the cat because right at that moment the one that was sitting on my feet (a cat not a duck) and keeping them warm got up and left....just like that....how rude! So I threatened to send him off to you to use as required. All I got for that comment was a flick of his tail as he strolled around the corner. Hmmph! Why do we keep them I ask?
LOL! Anyway, I do like the duck and I also like the chunky page. The fold up legs was an excellent addition.
Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
