Like a used paint rag…

Do you ever feel like a old dried up paint rag, laying on the floor – waiting to be thrown away? Discarded. Finished. Used up?

Sometimes I do feel like that, but not today.

I just wondered, because I needed to share this photo with you guys!

Paper cloth
Isn’t this dry paint rag beautiful?

So life can’t be too bad.

That’s what I’m thinking.

    • Thank you Jenny, so glad you’re enjoying new (and old) blog posts and sharing your enthusiasm with me – it just makes my heart sing with you. Thank you for doubling my fun too! :-)

  2. Paint and dye rags, especially if they are paper towel or wet wipes, are great for collaging and making paper-cloth (see Stitch Alchemy by Kelli Perkins).

    • Thanks Michele, I don’t own that book but I sure know about recycling things. I hearts; that! This paint rag is already in my stash of collage papers! Yay, for pretty papers, right? :-)

      • I love pretty papers. I think you’d like the book. I’ve made some of the paper-fabric using kitchen towel that I’d mopped up procion dyes with, and then glued it to muslin with a 50/50 mix of PVA glue and water. There are pictures on my Pinterest boards. Drop by and have a look.

  3. Hej. Man kan se ngot vackert i allt om man bara rtt glasgon p sig. Du har den kunskapen och dom rtta glasgonen, var stolt fr det.

  4. Oh, pretty! I have used old clean up rags in my journal. Recently used one to make my most favorite spread … at least for now, lol.

    • Thanks Melanie, that sounds interesting with the rag inside the journal… I will be sure to use this paper cloth inside my journal (or in a collage) too. Love all those colors!

  5. yes, beautiful! You could wrap that around stretcher blocks or an old canvas and have a new piece of modern art.

    Spring is coming……..

    • Thanks Marcia, I love it when you come visit my blog, though I miss your posts as you know. Feels like you and me are old timers in this world. :-) Take care!

    • Thank you sweet one. Sometimes the simplest things are the best, right? In times like this I love my camera and that I can document the transient things in the world – and on my studio desk!
