I still have some junk jewelry from my last Goodwill jar! I used up a handful of it in this mixed media Junk Jewelry Collage. I used theme “What a Wonderful World”.
I got the frame at a garage sale for $6.00!
Step One: Cut scrapbook paper to fit each box and attach with glue stick. I tried to use complimentary colors so it wasn’t matching, but adding pops of color.
When surveying the pile of junk jewelry I picked out pieces that represented our “world”. After the glue was dry under the scrapbook paper:
Step Two: Use E6000 to secure the pieces to the insides of the boxes.
The junk jar contained some cool lapel pins and pendants. The owl pendant became the focal of the collage.
The dolphin worked well on the scrapbook paper…it was complete serendipity the line to differenciate the water! The clear marble pendant had actual plant life embedded.
The rhinestone butterfly seemed to like it’s new spot and I place a scrapbook coin to add dimension to the rustic pendant underneath.
A bracelet and an odd collection of charms filled up two rectangular segments.
Finally I secured a hanger in the back of the tray. I used an actual necklace chain from the junk jewelry jar.
It is so fun to make these mixed media collages…you see something different each time you look at it!
