Upcycled Mixed Media Wall Decor

I first made this pattern when I was working with my high school students who were preparing for a craft show, but loved them so much I kept on making them even after I stopped teaching! These are made from a variety of reclaimed and upcycled vintage materials. I also do custom bunnies or dogs with baby clothes or other special fabrics.
I love the challenge to make upcycled things. I have incorporated recycled, reclaimed, repurposed, and upcycled materials into my daily life and creative endeavors for many years. I try to look for ways to reduce my consumption of manufactured materials by integrating the old with the new.
This mixed media wall decor piece was constructed using a discarded piece of plywood approximately 18 x 24 inches, decoupaged with Kaiser Craft's "75 cent Scrapbook Collection" and an assortment of new and upcycled mixed media assemblages.
