art every day #21: sunday newspaper tape city

rolls-of-tape

sunday-paper-tape-city

the newspaper + colored tape = a load of sunday morning collage fun! i ordered a jar of these fabulous crepe tapes from red bow studio for my daughter's birthday, because she's a tape addict, and this morning i asked her if i could swipe from her stash. she agreed. i chopped up the sunday newspaper and within a few hours this little city was born. the mexican four cheese house is mine, and the diamond tower w/the UFO is taken too, but the rest of the buildings are available for immediate occupancy. the crossword puzzle house is condemned, but as you can see, it can be had for a fair price if you are the fixer upper type. i'll be doing more of these - i am now totally, completely, incurably addicted to tape!

Really cute, for some reason it reminds me of the Colorforms kits I used to adore as a kid.

What happened to Colorforms? And I'm working on a blog post about those paint with water books which are also so hard to find now!

HAHAHA! Whoa Nelly! Hey, it reminds me of Colorforms too!

Looks like so much fun. I'm buying the Dunkin' Donuts condo. Mmm, donuts. Come over for a cuppa anytime. In fact, stick your cup out the window and I'll pour you some.

I want to live in that rainbow city! Great tape...my son is a tape addict. He especially like the colored duct tapes, but I bet these would be a big hit, too and maybe he would let me borrow them occasionally, too :)

What a happy place to live! I love all the colours and the creative imagination that went into this collage. Well done!

Kim Hambric said...

This is so awesome!! I'm going to stare at it for a while longer.

AG Ambroult said...

that is AWESOME. I just ordered colored tape for my girls for xmas, but I suspect that is going to be yet another gift that is really for me.

Anairam said...

Wow - this is fabulous! I would frame it & put it on my wall. THis is so beautiful that I am thinking of making my own one now - with my monochrome mind I would probably use a combination of black duct tape and creamy masking tape to make my cityscape. Then you can come and visit me. We'll have champagne and canapes and then we can go back to yours and have icecream and fizzy fruity drinks and then we can all fall over.

Valerie Lorimer said...

This is absolutely wonderful, Aimee! I just love coming to your blog to find out what you're up to.
