Salvaging is part of art making.
If you don't like what you've done, the urge is to throw it away. Instead, you look at it carefully and cut out the parts that you like -- there are always parts that are worth salvaging.

To thine own self be true. -- the Bard


  1. Delightful goodies - tags too ! xoxo

  2. Your salvage philosophy in art-making is very clever, Colette. We have a piece of art that was made by a friend's sister, an artist, using a discarded canvas (she was also an art professor in Wisconsin); that was the premise of a series of her creations. (Sadly she died in her sleep of a brain aneurysm but a sister of hers in Montreal adopted her young daughter and now the daughter goes to my children's school if you can believe).

  3. Hi Colette,
    I LOVE to salage art pieces, it is fun and brings new life to an other wise lost piece. Love your art, blog and your etsy shop!!
    You are having fun and it shows!
    xx Susan
