With over 150 million games sold worldwide, Scrabble is a legend in the board game genre! Found in 1 out of 3 American homes, sold in 121 countries, it has become a game night tradition for countless families. It is no wonder that so many artists and crafters have found a use for sets with missing tiles, or older sets that have been replaced with newer or more deluxe versions. And thank goodness, since anything we can keep from ending up in our overfilled dumps is one more thing we can do to save our planet! Upcycling scrabble tiles has truly become a trendy style in the arts and craft world, and my latest collection shows some of the most clever of all. Etsy sellers are always looking for a way to shine among so many talented individuals, the competition is fierce but friendly! So it is in such good spirit that we share those wonderful finds with each other and our buyers in collections under the heading: Treasury. Carefully chosen with either a theme or color scheme, they are not only a reflection of the creators of the items, but the curator as well. Since collages are my favorite media, I approach the process as if I am composing a collage. So here is my latest 'work of art'!
