My newest obsession.....altered art!
I have been looking at altered art for awhile now and collecting bits and pieces to make something but I was never quite sure what it would be. Well, last week I decided to give it a try. I started with an old wooden cabinet door and a page from a vintage children's book and went from there. What I ended up with was a piece I call "Let us crow old together".
This piece is the love story of two crows who come from different "backgrounds" (read the handwritten note to the left of the nest), but are deeply in love (read the love note above the crows). They are watching over their three little pearl eggs and surrounded by shiny red apples and autumn leaves. The piece is embellished with vintage buttons, ribbon, glitter and paint. I have to say that I really had a good time working on this and plan to do more altered art in the very near future. To read more about this piece and see another photo you can go to my website.
