Recycled Dryer Sheets for Collage

November 21, 2011

While occupied with family fun, I saw this video on YouTube today by Kristen Watts that I thought you might enjoy and maybe even be inspired to try. This technique uses recycled dryer sheets. You know how I love recycling! I think I have to do this. Instead of collaging commercial patterned papers onto the dryer sheets, I would of course use my own collage papers. And I can’t stand rubbing paint with my fingers, so I would use a wet piece of cloth or something similar.

Otherwise, looks like fun. I’ve bookmarked this video to come back and watch again.

I hope you’re having a great week, and if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope it will be a wonderful family time.

    The dryer sheets are fun to do as well as deli paper, sandwich wrap and paper towels.
    Happy Thanksgiving, Martha, to you and your family.

      Thanks for the good wishes, Pat. The same to you and your family! Just between you and me . . . I secretly wish for late nights and early mornings when all are asleep so I can play with this stuff!! Can you say art withdrawal??

    Transfer dyes are interesting. You paint them on to paper, then iron the pattern onto fabric. It must be a manmade fabric – and works well on dryer sheets. You can print on the paper too, so that gives two surfaces for collage – the painted paper AND the resulting dryer sheet!

    Looks like lots of fun! I really need to spend more time looking at the video tutorials on utube. Thanks for sharing! Happy Holidays!
