Confession of a Mixed Media Artist

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.
