Toilet Roll Art????

What can one create using the rolls of toilet paper???

Simply fold the roll in half lengthwise....

then simply create art on each roll....
I used butcher block papers,
Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Walnut Stains,
various rubber stamps....
fibres,
found objects and
ephemera.
oh.... and some bling.
The above piece includes a washer and a bottle cap.
DecoArt Texture Fierro was brushed on the above piece.
Each roll has a tag inserted into it....
which also has been painted, stamped and embellished.
Little works of art.
Different eh?
You can see more toilet roll art on YouTube

  8. Very cool and "green" to boot! Welcome to the world of Tim Holtz there's no turning back now :) I started with 2 Distress inks last year and have amassed a huge collection over the course of this year. The best part is you won't regret one red cent spent and the art you will be creating will blow your mind! Looks like you've hit the ground running already!
