This is the top of a box I created from a cereal box. It is meant to store my altered and recycled slide mounts which I use as embellishments for my mixed media art projects. I created it especially for this months Altered Eclectics challenge which you will find through the link below and hope you will pop by and join us.

You can also see more photos of this project on my Doodle Pieces blog

I created this card for this months challenge over at The Craft Garden. Since I am mostly a mixed media artist who also loves altered and recycled art this was a nice change for me.

The lovely work below was created by Elenor Sandstrom who's work is being Featured on the Recycle, Re-Purpose & Reinvent monthly challenge blog. The theme for this challenge is always anything goes but projects must include some recycling.  Please drop by and check out the rest of Elenor's photos and hope you will come share your own projects as well.

Just joined Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and wanted to say hi. What a fantastic community. I am a mixed media artist and pretty much recycle in every art piece I create. The Steampunk Shadowbox below was made using 16 different recycled items. :) Chris
I just joined Google Plus a couple of days ago and still trying to figure out how everything works here but thought I would share a bit about myself as well as show one of my altered/recycled projects.

The Steampunk Shadowbox below is an older piece but is still among one of my favorites because everything used to create it was either drawn by me or is recycled.

The shadow box itself is made from a large cereal box which has been reinforced with mat-board left over from framing paintings and covered with pages from an old book. All total I used 16 recycled bits which include roofing materials, packing materials and part of an aluminum pie plate which I embossed.  You can find a few more pictures of this projects as well as the complete list of what I recycled through the link below.

Besides being an oil painter and watercolorist, I am also a digital stamp artists with my own line of original stamps. I love all kinds of art but lean more heavily towards  mixed media, altered and assemblage art. As you can probably already tell, I also love recycling and using found objects in my art. I hope you have enjoyed my project and look seeing some of your work as well. :)

I just joined Google Plus a couple of days ago and am so excited to have found your Mixed Media Community.

Since I don't know anyone here yet, I though it might also be nice to introduce myself. Besides being an oil painter and watercolorist, I am also a digital stamp artists on line with my own line of original stamps which I also use in my own creations. I love all kinds of art but lean more heavily towards  mixed media, altered, assemblage and recycled art. I have attached a photo below which includes a few of my more recent pieces which I hope you will all enjoy seeing. It is so nice to be here and I look forward to getting to know everyone and seeing more of your art. Thank you all for the wonderful inspiration. :) Chris
