We copy/paste all the time, digitally I mean. But for this project I did it in real life.
The little piece of furniture for the television we have, serves its purpose, but is a bit boring to look at. Now, I love making collages and making combinations of different prints, so that was what would do. Firstly I painted the thing in a deep-turquoise color. Then I selected some pictures I had teared out of magazines and added copies of things I had lying around in the house: a piece of fabric, a dishcloth and some buttons on a sweater. I simply put them under the printer and pushed the copy-button a few times – so a true copy-paste thing…. I made a nice arrangement and glued them with varnish onto the little cabinet. With a bit of relief paint I added some details, like the ladies glasses..! Now I can enjoy any TV-program, just by looking at my wonderful cabinet alone J
