Assemblage Wear at Paper Whimsy!

Assemblage Wear?
What's that?
"assemblage,  in art, work produced by the incorporation of everyday objects into the composition. Although each non-art object, such as a piece of rope or newspaper, acquires aesthetic or symbolic meanings within the context of the whole work, it may retain something of its original identity. 

One of my current favorite assemblage artists...

See what I mean? I look at his stuff and I go ga-ga.

I'm excited to be taking his class this October at Art is You...I have no idea how I'm going to incorporate what I learn into what I normally do,but I'm ready for the challenge.
In the meantime...
I've been wondering... Why does Assemblage have to go on the table or on the wall?
Why cant we walk around wearing our mini works of art?
Assemblage Wear..heehee..

Be sure to stop by the Paper Whimsy inspire blog and learn how I made my version of a little hanging assemblage.

"Long ago God drew a circle in the sand exactly around the spot where you are standing right now. You were never not coming here. This was never not going to happen.” — Elizabeth Gilbert

Here's to making every minute count,
