Introduction: Address Label LANDSCAPE Design

About: I am an artist living and teaching ART in NYC for over 30 years, and I am a CZT, Certified Zentangle Teacher. I love to explore all sorts of art making both in my teaching and in my own work...check out my s...

Some charities will send out free address labels to help increase awareness of their cause or as a small token in hopes to get you to donate to them. I have accumulated literally hundreds of address labels and although I still enjoy writing letters and sending actual cards to friends and family I know I will never use them all. Being the "collector" that I am, I couldn't bear to dispose of them either, so I decided to use them to create a landscape. 

Step 1:

All you need are the lables, a pencil, a larger piece of paper and a scissor.

Step 2: RED

First I went through the  sheets of address labels and tried to separate them into piles of similar colors.

Step 3: ORANGE

Step 4: YELLOW

Step 5: GREEN

Step 6: BLUE

Step 7:

Step 8: Brown

Step 9: Misc

Step 10: Color Folders

I put all the sheets into color coded folders to make it easier to keep the separate. 

Step 11: Begin

I chose brown paper to use as my base and began by drawing  pencil lines to indicate where I might make my landscape.

Step 12: Sky

I began with the sky

Step 13: Continue

I continued to work my way down the landscape

Step 14: Details

Step 15: Flower Gardens

Step 16: Field of Lavender

Step 17: Beginning of a Bush

Step 18: Autumn Leaves

Step 19: Spring Snow

Step 20: Evergreen Tree on the Hill

Step 21: Finished Bush

Step 22: Done

    Using a medium for an art project that most of us would normally throw away in our landfills is wonderful. I also LOVE this picture.
