Here are the first finished projects from my catch up year!
I have been fascinated with assemblage boxes, but, whenever I try to make one it comes out kind of cutesy. Which is OK - I live in a pink puffball world anyway, so that is just how my art comes out.
So I found these girls' photos in a Salvation Army. I loved their dresses and their sweet expressions. I papered the boxes with vintage papers, added wings and some metal adornments and then some faux foliage. I just kept going until I felt they were 'done'.
These boxes are tiny - maybe 3-4 inches square. They can stand on their own or hang by a sawtooth hanger glued on the back.
