I'm a college student whose about to graduate. I love one too many things and want to learn it all. I named my tumblr The Proper Life because that's how I want to be living it. Health, fitness, women, fashion, music, digital media and others will be part of my content...

Currency Collages by Mark Wagner. “The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. Collage asks the question: what might be done to make it something else? It is a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept. Blade and glue transform it-reproducing the effects of tapestries, paints, engravings, mosaics, and computers-striving for something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable… the foreign in the familiar.”This is amazing art. All pieces have been made entirely out of one dollar bills! Wow.
