Repurposed Inspiration: Mixed Media Altoid Doll Assemblage

love feature

I have been dreaming up ways to use my huge collection of seed beads!  I experimented using the beads for my darling altoid doll hair.  It was so fun to make each strand.

The inside of the altoid tin had a back of scrapbook paper, with washi tape covering the sides and a long strand of seed beads to finsih the edge.  Finally I used a gold button for her heart.

There was space between the neck and the altoid tin that needed something so I wrapped copper chain and secured it to the back.

I used 20 gauge black annealed wire to attach the hand made paper clay arms and legs.

This is such a nice sentiment!  I used my FREE MAGAZINE FONT to spell it in that whimsical way.

Recently I have been adding two lines with a skinny permanent marker to make the letters have some POP.  It was really fun to make this 10 x 10 mixed media collage :  )
