I confess, as a Mixed Media Artist, I tend to see most things in terms of my art. This is especially true when I go to a restaurant that serves food on Deli Paper.
The moment the food arrived on this wonderful black and white checked paper, the ideas started to flow. I could not leave that place without asking for a piece of that paper. I have asked so many servers for extra deli papers that it's become second nature to me now.
The black and white check reminded me of a 1950s diner. I found photos of old dress patterns online. If you google Fashions and a year you'll find all kinds of cool images. I wonder who scans all these images in so we can all view them and use them in our art?
The numbers were done in MS Publisher and printed on a laser copier. Then I did a packing tape transfer. I run my transfer under warm water because I'm too impatient to wait 5 minutes. It was a Fast and Easy Page.
