Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! Thank you for joining me and my co-hosts for our weekly art link-up. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing artwork that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges too!

Earlier this summer, Kennady was intrigued by a collection of vintage records at a yard sale. And when I say "vintage" I am referring to 78s! She had some ideas about using a couple of them for decor in her room, and it also occurred to us that they might be something we could resell. Eventually we bought the whole box-ful of records for a very low price. (I could say "for a song"!) Over the past several weeks, Kennady has been experimenting in using the records as a canvas for artwork.

Her first idea was to use pastels, which she tried on a couple records which were already broken. This sunset usually sits in her window now.

The drawback to pastels is that the color will rub off unless there's a fixative on it, and it was a little messy to work with. We then decided to try metallic Sharpie.

 She's still got a quite a stack to be creative with! What else should we try? Should we try selling some of her artistic records?

that is a really cool idea! I love the metallic pen on them. Wonder how paint would work on them?
