Get on out to your toolbox in the garage and steal that hacksaw blade you only use twice a year. At least now you’ll know where it is. Probably.
Canson Mix Media, 98 lb (160 g), 14 x 17 inches (35,5 x 43,1 cm).
Banged-up hacksaw blade.
In the background we have, unrelated but curiously useful, household supplies: isopropyl alcohol to speckle and distort acrylic paint and spackling compound to apply an inexpensive texture to a page.
Also, an art journal I sewed together from embellished pages–you can just make out ripple-cut edges–from a Fiskar’s rotary cutter leftover from sewing days.
(Thankfully, I have been curious all my life because all that past-life stuff is sitting around me now. Including beads, buttons, wire, string, drywall tape, and hacksaw blades!)
(Oh, and if you really enlarge the pic, on the far back left you’ll see a damn purchased cat toy that the damn cat damn well plays with! The other damn cat will deign to eat cat cookies from it if hand-fed. Sigh…)
Here’s a close-up of the tear marks when tearing two sheets stacked. Bonus stencil for free!
PS. I just used the hacksaw to cut up a hair comb to be used as a texture tool. (I don’t need no stinkin’ comb for my hairdo!)
