Beach Clean Up & Up-cycle

     It's easy for me to admit that I'm a beachcomber. I can't go to the Gabriola shorelines without searching through the rocks and pebbles in my hands and looking at all the driftwood pieces. At times, I'll find wood pieces or styrofoam from boats and I'll stop and think about ways I could use these found materials. I was on the beach the other day and found this piece of styrafoam, I thought it would be easy to shape it and decided that I will use it to make either a mosaic fish or a junk bird. I will post you a picture with what it becomes, and hope that the transformation does up-cycle it from discarded garbage on the beach to a piece of art.
