I found a bag of Altoid tins in the “FREE” box at a garage sale earlier this summer and I finally got around to turning them into little assemblages with junk I have sitting in the studio.
It is amazing how my art sells at Sunrose Gallery here in Seaside, Oregon. Folks often purchase my work for a gift. Sometimes the piece sells because of it’s title or theme like this retro themed shrine.
I used periodic tables scrapbook paper to emphasize CHEMISTRY, so it might sell to a science major.
Here’s to peace and happiness!
How can someone pass up a whimsical “BE HAPPY” reminder? LOL. I used a glass votive candle holder that is attached to a tin can lid. The kangaroos have been sitting on a shelf for years.
I covered a thread spool with corrigated aluminum I got at a thrift store and made a vintage button heart.
I have had the big ceramic red macrame bead for 7 years! Wow I can’t believe it has finally found a use as the feature for this assemblage.
These were so fun to make I have already started on another batch of assemblages!
