The Found Art Tuesday theme this week is inspiration. I've been getting inspiration from reading recently, so I thought I'd include words as well as visuals.

This is an empty Whitman's sampler box collaged with odd images.


The inside of the top lid has a piece of paper with, "what inspires you?" over and over. I glued a little glass bead in the center.


Inside the box are 6 cards with inspirational quotes. Well, one of them is from Jack Handy. I think no collection of quotes is complete without a Deep Thought...

Oh, in my quote quest today, I discovered that Oscar Wilde said this, "We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars." Chrissie Hynde just sang it. And then I had that song in my head the rest of the day.

I created a little slip sheet thingie for the title. In small letters underneath it says "(i made this and left it here for you to find)". Last time I actually put my email address on the piece (haven't heard from anyone), but this time I think I want it to be more mysterious.

I don't know where I'm going to leave this one...

Drive down to Houston and leave it at my gate so I can find it!

(And if a song must stick in your head, Message of Love is a good option)

"Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars" is the name of a Fatboy Slim album, and part of the lyrics of "Weapon Of Choice", by the way.

Deanna, this is so amazing! it's got so much work put into it, and I mean both in making it and thinking of the meaning of inspiration. I love the little blue glass drop. I visited the found art project you started, I'm still trying to figure out how that site works, though... congrats! love your art!
