Haven't fully recovered from our LA trip, trying to get back into the swing of things but my mind and body are still tired. Rolfe and I had a lovely time though! Easing back into paper with a piece for the "leftovers" series, made with offcuts from the + commission a few posts back. This one is called TENT CITY. ⛺😬 #ArtFromScraps #MadeFromPaper #JUDiTHandROLFE

If you love the feeling of “forever” Spring & Summer~ you can enjoy snuggling under this beautifully artistic #kwiltwithatwist all year. 
This quilt is made entirely from scraps fabrics that I picked up at a local recycling shop.  It is made with a myriad of fabrics, including a table cloth for a backing.  All the exact fabrics are not known; therefore I would recommend professional dry cleaning.

I designed this pattern myself, based on how many 4 inch squares I had available of each of the chosen fabrics. It was super fun to design, and even more fun to sew together.  I then decided to embellish the quilt, as is my artistic flair with my bags.  I use scrap ribbons and lace, and I tried to embellish without covering the visual affects of the pattern. 
If you look closely, there is a cute little apron pocket adorning the front, near the top, for a cell phone or remote.  And on the back, toward the bottom, there is a fantastic cozy pocket to put your feet in to keep covered and warm. 
Quilt is:
48” wide X 72” long

Loved playing with the Nestable Patterned Dies from @mydiamondpress. I adored turning a bunch of little scraps into beautiful cards!! How do you use you Diamond Press dies?

This is why Judy Geib called this collection “Studio Sweeps”. She is literally taking small scraps and cuttings of gold off the work table and building remarkable collage one-of-a-kind earrings. #thisisart #lovewhatyoudo #makeartfromyourheart #scrapgold #artfromscraps #jewelry4life
I build this robot years ago, wanted it to do my dishes, but it didnt want so I turned it into a desklamp instead! #artbymetsa #art #artist #ironsculpture #robot #robotsculpture #artfromscraps #desklamp
While the computer was unavailable, I tried my hand at a tiny still life made from fabric scraps and old broken jewelry pieces. I'm pretty in love with it.

Throwback to my first Trash-to-treasure artwork. Made with cardboard, magazine paper, buttons, yarn and thread, all recycled including the canvas, which is an old IKEA shelf. Swipe left to see the close-up of the 3D effect created with different thickness of the cardboard blocks, quilled paper circles and paper rolls tied with silk threads. #colourpop #recycledart #upcycle #trashtotreasure #artfromscraps #magazine #colour #walldecor #wallart
Miniature Machete. 1/10 scale. Made out of a broken putty knife and scrap leather for the handle. #machete #minimachete #miniature #miniatureart #artfromscraps #reuse #recycle #yeg #yegarts #ollysartsandscraps
Not all wood slices make it to the wood burning stage. Some are cracked, too small, too large, cut poorly, etc. I have made it a priority to reduce my waste as much as possible so I will be giving these off cuts some TLC and painting them. Any requests for imagery?

Work in progress. Plaster mixed with coffee grounds, molded in a Starbucks cup. I really like carving plaster while it’s still wet!

Watercolor pencil demo goes rouge. I keep scraps (usually 2” strips) of “good papers” my students end up cutting down. This is Arches paper. A year (or more!) ago I cleaned off the paint palette of a student onto this piece. (Periwinkle to pink gradation). Monday I needed something to show how grounds can work in a piece and demo some watercolor pencils.  Searching for a subject, 2nd period started with a heart. 3rd got the wings. 4th?  I don’t remember. Then, I couldn’t leave it alone. A rarity I want to make more on a norm—doing some demo art while my students make art. I long for the chances to do this. But alas, I end up walking around to look at their progress and give suggestions (but even more so, to tell Kids to GET TO WORK!). If I’m not walking around, only 2/3s or a half really seem to use a whole period for work. That saddens me. A shout out to my students who DO the work WHILE in my room AND do their Sketchbook assignments prior to arrival. THANK YOU. You know who you are. YOU ARE THE RESON I STILL FIND THE ENERGY AND DRIVE TO TEACH. please tolerate my eyebrow lifting and expressions. I need you. I need you smile or head shake to keep me sane. #artteacherproblems #artfromscraps #tossoffart #artwithnomeaning #artfordemonstrationonly #tritesymbolshorrifyme #i❤️myjob #goodstudentsrock #mystudentskeepmestrong

Crafting from scraps.  I usually throw all my scrap paper, card stock, and yarn into various boxes by type.  My kids use these in their art and own crafts almost daily.  Best part?  Free.  These are honestly small tails of yarn that I would’ve thrown away or paper scraps that I would’ve recycled.

Another one for the "leftovers" series. Made with offcuts from the gold ceiling papercut. Reminds me of a Borg cube, don't you think? #ResistanceIsFutile

These two just may be my absolute favorites. 
They are literally just scraps sewn together in a hot mess that turned out like works of art- textile art. 
And if you think they are cute in the picture...... you should see them in person!!! And you can!!! Watch for details.

Always on the lookout for the perfect dance partner? Well look no more! Leroy Seeds has the moves that will have everyone talking around the water cooler for days. You'll be the talk of the town as you dash from club to club with this amazing dancer. But don't let all the flashy moves fool you, Leroy Seeds needs just as much love and support as the next doll. Can you provide that kind of home for Leroy Seeds? Each Kreepy Doll has an adoption fee of $20 (plus tax) and can be found in the gallery space of our shop! #creativereuse #kreepydollfactory #danielbaxter #artfromscraps #fiberart #greatgifts #love #pittsburghart #pittsburghartist #littlewatermelonguy

"Iron Man" (aka "Neo-nomad") seemingly strolls along Astana's pedestrian walk, a creation from materials left over from the construction of the pavilions housing Astana Expo 2017. -

This is a mixed media cityscape I created with conte crayons and pencil and then carried the art out into the framing using upcycled pallet wood and hardware from the shop. Mostly scraps. Even the windows are hand cut tiny pieces of scrap glass. This piece is for sale. One of many in my cityscape series. #cityscape #cityscapeart #palletwoodframe #upcycledwood #buildings #contemporaryart #hardware #contecrayons #northpark #sandiegoart #customframing #raystreetcustomframing #artfromscraps
