I just completed this piece for a challenge from
KC Willis at Collage Camp.
the idea was to use only recycled and used elements.
this wonderful old printers box was perfect for such a project!
most of the pieces are things i have picked up on the ground...
on my runs in the city...
at the beach..or in the woods.
although i must confess there are a few bits of
paper and such that are not recycled...
I couldn't help myself...creative license bonus!
this is one of my favorite quotes.. though i have so many...
but it really described the essence of this piece...
my favorite type of art...
bringing together bits of found treasures from many places
to create a beautiful rembrance. the paper is coffee stained.
the grapevine and beach glass i collected myself.
i've added a couple of old clock gears for a bit of steampunk appeal..
i thought they went well with the brass connectors
on the crossbars of the box.
i found this piece of beach glass last week in Maine...
it reminded me of an old vase.
i always have a closet full of hanging flowers
in the process of drying...
i love using them to make wreaths and wrap gifts.
used a beach pebble for the egg.
the old lace doily is coffee stained.
the driftwood came from the beach
and pools in Maine.
