Rust and Relaxation
When I'm walking to the gym I pick up bits of rusty things.
I found this rusted top that I thought would make a good base for this pendant.
I'm wild about the sari silk ribbon I just discovered recently.
this is photographed against some of the rusty objects we've collected.
Most of these bits were from the ground or the thrift store.
I aged the wood by leaving it outside for 6 months and applying a
copper and patina treatment
As you can see I changed my focus this week back to assemblage and collage.
It called me back!
I found that wiry bit on the ground the other day and had to put it to use!
It was time to start using some of the items from my frozen charlottes collection too.
( sorry about the fuzziness here)
I took a different way on my walk to the gym and
discovered some great surfaces
I love doorways
I was surprised to find this!
