this seemed like the logical place to put this because 1) it's a paper craft and 2) the found object is wood which is trees which is also paper.
anyways, it's just one part that i need some advice on. I found this chest of drawers while trashpicking and took it home to keep art/craft supplies. it's was boring and i wanted to toy around, and i think I've done well do far. here it is:



(one side and back)

Now, the back is the worst part. I want to do something amazing but i can't decide if I'd like to do a scene or just be random or what. suggestions? comments?

p.s. it looks so much better in person. the colors are so bright.

The boys i mean are not refined
They cannot chat of that and this
They do not give a fart for art
They kill like you would take a piss
They speak whatever's on their mind
They do whatever's in their pants

They shake the mountains when they dance

Oohhh I'm so jealous, it looks awesome!  Grin

How about a combination of the 2 ideas, here's an idea I had reading what you put...

A collage of images (whatever random stuff you like)  as the background, with a (single or group) person/animal/creature, climbing a rope (or whatever) over the images in the background, (like it's a landscape and they are climbing over it).

thanks for posting this..I have all sorts of random colored storage boxes, etc.--very boring and kinda distracting colors...

I think if I used some of my various papers and collections like this, it would make everything more unique and tie in better to what I want my room to look like!!

Very unique--you did a wonderfu job and what an inspiration!

How about doing a journal page for the back?  When I go flea marketing, I have found some cool old stuff that someone wrote the story of the piece I am buying--what it was, how it was done, signed and dated it--almost like a very large antique -look style matching the front would be wonderful--age the paper, etc. Someday, someone will love to have "found" this and the recycling continues!!

I love those drawers!  I like the idea of a journal page for the back, maybe a list of what the packaging/images on the front and sides mean to you (if anything) or a made-up story incorporating all the images.  Good luck!
