New interview over at The Penny Hoarder!

Tips and tricks from Heather Landry AKA Sandpaperdaisy on saving money as an artist

Yep, someone at the largest money-saving blog in the world, The Penny Hoarder, actually agreed to let me open my big fat mouth to staff writer Lauren Tharp for an interview on ways to cut costs while making art. You might be familiar with all of these tricks or you might not, but believe me I picked my brain for every sneaky little way I could think of to save a few bucks. I’m blushing a little though, the article makes it sound like these are all my ideas and achievements. Actually, the credit goes to all of my artist buddies and acquaintances who’ve shared tips and organized great events over the years.

DRIFT part 2: SCRAP

the drift scrap version I made for EDAC 2013 sandpaperdaisy

In my last post I mentioned that DRIFT had gone through different forms. Here you see DRIFT:SCRAP, a piece I made for last year’s Earth Day Art Crawl. I took a copy of my digital painting and decoupaged it to a piece of scrap wood left behind by the last people who owned our home, then screwed in different bits of machinery from busted appliances. I wanted to both extend the lines of the reclaimed bits in the children’s home-made rocket and also explore the Earth Day theme of art made from found objects. Everyone loved it including me!

My pictures of the piece are from last year (read: last phone) and aren’t that hot, but I’ll try to get some new ones. I still have this baby and I’ll be bringing it to this year’s Earth Day Art Crawl on the 19th where it will be for sale!
