Do you create with found objects? How do you use found objects to create art?
If you have a lot of info on this, I'd love to read a hub about it.
Hi, Robie. I sometimes create with found objects; I work mostly with old costume jewelry, usually pieces that have some type of damage. Earrings that have lost their mate, broken necklaces, brooches with missing stones, etc. Here are some of my hubs that give instructions about using these items to mosaic.

There is a lady out in Colorado who uses jewelry, broken tile, broken plates, statues of Buddha and angels, etc. to make some amazing shrines. Here is her website:
I enjoy creating art/collage from things I find in the woods, including metal w/paints. Of course it goes without saying...you need to have a good eye for composition.
Sorry, I don`t have a hub about it, but It`s sure a whole lot of fun, just do it, start creating
I tend to find buttons alot...so I have a project coming up this winter that I will write a hub about.
Since I have a glue gun, I like to make sculptures with natural objects...for various purposes.
I will pick up things off the ground like bottle caps or other interesting things... I have a whole baggie full of stuff that I've cleaned that is just objects I've found here and there just waiting on the right project. I have used the bottle caps to make pendants before but I have a whole bunch of other stuff like metal washers, old watches, old jewelry that I bought super cheap and garage sales, yard sales, etc.
I have created jewelry out of shells found along the beach. Recently, I have found several shells in small sizes with a small round hole already on it...perfect for threading for a necklase, bracelet or earrings. Other family members also collect shells/rocks and use them to decorate in a bowl with a candle or just by themselves in a clear vase or glass cylinder.
I do not consider myself very artistic. But one thing I have always done was dry roses and use them as decorations. And I am not even sure how I picked up on that! When I get roses, I let them live out their lives and then once they start dying, I hang them upside down to dry out. It takes a few days for all the moisture to go and then I decorate with them.
i buy insexpensve small items form mickials craft store to come up with one or two projects or you can use as a base for your craft any old used clean back ground , but smart to may be painted or cover it with any fabric or paper new then again you use small new object to add
or you can use 100percent recycle items
or you can use nature hunted items from the backyard
hope it is good to answer and not late
