Man, you can really waste a lot of time looking at the millions of pictures of mug rugs..a LOT of time. The amazing talent out there in Flickr world is truly intimidating! It can also be inspiring though, so I set off.
My first attempt was a fizzle. I wanted to try zig zags but I made the strips too big and when it was trimmed, it looked like a mess. The second attempt with smaller strips wasn't all that jazzy either, so I'm keeping it and using it to catch my own coffee drips. As I look through all the finished pics, I'm truly amazed that I was able to shoot my pockmarked, markered, mail covered and toy-riddled coffee table and it actually looks clean. Talented!
