I would like to thank so many individuals, groups and organizations who have seen the value of the “Put a lid on it” projects.  The last mural that I oversaw the creation of was the VanGogh mural located on the side of Red Brick Gallery in Martinsburg, WV.  That was created just over a year ago and I am pleased that people are still motivated to collect the lids for the purpose of upcycling and creating works of art to beautify our community.

I just wanted to put a thank you out there especially to Tomahawk Presbyterian Church in Berkeley County, WV for working together to save lids.

I will let everyone know when I start another one.

Currently Mussleman High School in Inwood West Virginia is collecting lids for two murals (Masterpiece Art Kits http://www.masterpieceartkits.com) that they are going to work on starting January 2011 for installation in the cafeteria.

I have been inspired!  I am so excited to share that I am trying something new to make the lid murals more “eco-friendly” and maybe more “eco”-nomic!  Recently, I stumbled on the work of California artist Linda Merica who works with recycled paper in various ways.  She uses recycled paper, or paper mache for a variety of thing but what really inspired is that she does custom floors whereas the paper is made to look like flag stones.  She also make counter tops that look great!  This is what got my mind wandering and wondering about the paper being a good binder for my upcycled lid murals.  For any of you that might be interested in trying to make a floor or something out of recycled paper she has a book for sale on her website for only $9 bucks.  Check it out at http://www.papertostone.com/
