Casette Art

Hello, my Friends!
I'm constantly amazed by how creativite my Team Girls are... Today is now different.
Marta - who is known by now for creating breathtaking assemblage pieces - is so inventive when it comes to chosing her...hm... art materials... :) See for yourselves and be amazed!


Hello my dear friends !
It's Marta Lapkowska here and it's my turn to be back with some inspiration for you.

Today's project is my next variation on assemblage art. Once again I used common and very well known but old objects that can be found in a household.
Can you spot some cassettes in my work ?
Yes, old type of cassettes, do you remember them ?
Do you still have some at home ?


To create this piece I used four old cassettes. I wanted to achieve some dimensional background which is not that easy to work with.
I wanted to experiment and see how I would manage to combine those in my art. I just love challenges !


I opened one of the cassettes and used rolls and tapes from inside. When I saw the all the bits, I figured that they could make perfect and great looking embellishments on their own, wouldn't you agree ? :)


I colored my work using mediums matching the colors of the tapes.
You can see the whole step by step process on my video. Enjoy!



I do hope that this mini canvas will open your mind and you will think outside the box!
Be sure to share your creations with us if you find this inspirational.
I have a feeling many of you still have old casettes at home so why not using them in your art?! ;)

Love,
Marta xx
