This is a prefect idea of recycled art. I think of doing this kind stuff all the time with stuff I can't sell. I actually have a junky guitar and some stamps right now. I think covering it with anything would be cool. Off the top of my head what about covering it with monopoly money? oh no! your going inspire me to do arts and crafts :)
This works because it sporadic color. but who knows. maybe garbage pail kid cards
The colors are neat! anything would work really. Even just painting on it..
