As promised...photos of my assemblage!




Here is a photo of me in front of the Gallery...It was about 10 degrees that night and I flung off my coat and my Hubby snapped the shot... LOL!


It took me a while to get some photos uploaded of my assemblage pieces because my digital is on the fritz...actually one of the photos is overexposed, so maybe I can upload it at a later time...

This is my found art assemblage titled "Within"...

It started out on a 1 1/2" deep edge gallery wrap canvas...On top of that I added a sculpted and painted wire mesh layer...then an altered and painted nubby textured paper layer...then a found wooden disc with vintage brass door knob piece...found object filigree accent with vintage B4 bingo button...burnt matchsticks and feather wings...
Below is a vintage ruler piece and vintage bingo dots and old key...

...check out my link on Nov. 30th for more details if interested :0)
