here is a mini journal i made out of recycled toilet roll holders. each page hosts a little tag with a personal message that you are able to pull out. i had a great deal of fun making this. i have a lot of ideas swirling in my head on ways i can alter this for future projects. what have you recycled for your art?

  6. A very sweet little book, Roc! And I sat here stunned for a few minutes about the fact that it has toilet paper rolls in there. I never would have guessed!

  8. Super little book Miss Roc and yep, great colour combo. How did you manage to get these holders to go flat? All I ever recycle are cereal packets, this is such a great idea!

  15. Hi Roc Star! Boy, I am way behind on you and owe you a long email. Finally, just the last couple of days feeling good and ready to take on the new year.

    What a great place to start but on your blog! I am so in need of a Roc Art fix! I get so inspired by your work. I think from now on you should just send me a picture of everything you do and all will be right with my world - you make me smile and you make my muses stand up and pay attention.

    I have not done well recycling things into my art, must admit. But you seem to be on a "roll" (pun kinda intended here, bad as it is)! You may be on to something - a series of projects using recycled things. You're brilliant, Roc, and I've never said otherwise (except in some old group games we used to play once upon a time but those don't count).

    I'll be emailing you soon. Love, love, love visiting you and your work. You're divine, Roc!

  16. Toilet roll holders??? Wow!!! I'm impressed!!! I recycle paper towels that I've used to wipe paint off my brushes....and also, cards and letters that I receive...I like to include some of them in my art for a personal touch.
