I'm still here and have been working on various projects like the clock shown here. Anyone who knows me knows that I love vintage images, especially from the 50's. I took some of those images and collaged a background on canvas for this one of a kind clock that is hanging in my art room. My favorite part of this piece is the second hand which is actually a picture of a woman's legs covered in fishnet stockings. What could be more kitchy I ask you...well, glad you asked.
This background collage sheet was compiled using various vintage ads and pictures. Feel free to take a copy and use it in your own work. I would LOVE to see what you create with it so please send it on.
I would have more images, lot's more, of the pieces I have been working on, but alas, my six year old digital camera fails to cooperate. Just what is the life span of a digital camera these days anyway??? When I get another camera I will post many pics of these projects I am either working on or have finished: Cross made with numerous vintage religious medals, more Taintor-esque pieces, altered dominoes and charms (this was new for me), and the biggest project is a shadowbox depicting the life of a school marm which includes a frame covered in antique book spines. Sound intriguing? I hope so.
They say that whatever you are doing at the beginning of the New Year is what you will be doing for the remainder of the year so I plan to spend lots of time in the next few days working on art projects.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
