The theme at The Three Muses this week had me thinking about how I enjoy finding something old and making it new- giving the old item a new purpose or a new look. I found some very old brick pieces in my yard and decided to hand paint, rubber stamp and decoupage with (my decorative napkins again) and see what would happen. I saw a project like this in a Somerset Studio magazine some time ago and decided it was time to try it out. I love recycled art and was happy with these pieces. The same technique can be used with any masonry or decorative rock and used as an indoor or garden decoration. Totally fun! With the old year giving way to the new I plan to look for more things to alter and make new again, rather than just tossing away (New Year's resolution #1).
