artwork created from a childhood stamp collection. I loved its simplicity. Which led me to thinking about creating something similar with my stamps. I debated mixing the postage and color, but at the end of the day, I liked the basic repetition of it. Sort of pop art meets kitsch.
dry bar, I've had this picture frame sitting in as a makeshift tray. It was time I did right by it and made it a dang tray after all. So with some drawer pulls (vintage would have been nice) and some E6000, I've rigged the frame up so that it serves as a decorative tray. I don't trust myself to actually use it by the handles. The handles seem pretty dang attached, but just when I give in I'm sure I'll have a disaster moment with glass and liquids and carpet stains.
I chose the purple Jefferson stamps because the frame was gold, and it was a very subtle nod to our alma mater. I debated adding a vinyl sticker of the university on the glass of the tray, but decided against it because, again, that simplicity was more intriguing.boxes covered in stamps and a tray covered in stamps, and I still have so many more.
