Day 42: Junk Mail

Title: Heart Attack

Assignment: Turn today's junk mail into something much more appealing.

Materials: Store flyers, pen, glue, scissors, hole puncher.

Inspiration: With Valentine's Day next week, my mailbox is overflowing with red colored ads for flowers and MEAT MEAT MEAT along with the usual boxes of candy. So I decided to make a Valentine mosaic based on a human heart filled to bursting with all that. Not sure that it is more 'appealing', per se, but hopefully appropriate for this blog. I was actually surprised at the different shadings and depth I was able to create with the different reds, and especially like the little Chordae tendineae made out of strip steak.
