So these books are monsters- 12x14"
And all kinds of things to make resin charms of.
Or use as decoupage?
Or friggin' stick on my wall for chrissakes, they're So Good.
This one is chock-full of little faces that I can make into earring pairs. You always want them facing each other, see?
They're not all religious, these are just the ones that pop on this blerg format, feel me?
Here's some really small images from the mini books.
Of course the books cost just a couple bucks each.
And many would be horrified to see me tear them up, though once they see all the stuff Imna make they'd shut their pie holes.
Jeebus' eyeballs are too big for his head here.
I got this book about artists following in the steps of Torres Garcia, Uruguay's most famousest artist.
Inside which all kinds of grungy loveliness can be found.
This one isn't for makies, it's just for me to drool over.
And omg- artists in Uruguay are broke as fuck! And there so deserving of, like, not being broke...
Look at this little object from, yeah we're still looking at that same book.
Finally I got this book on contemporary art in Montevideo, the capital.
So much goodness!
Though most of it is not coming across in my pix so ...
Oh I love this one because it makes me think of a rickety old tv among precarious tables and shelves while also looking like a fantastical building. Really just more different kinds of grungy wonderfulness. Why do I love all things grungy so damned much? Because there's none of that here probly.
