New artwork!











I've had this idea for weeks now and finally finished this art project!


I love old things. I'm sure you all know that by now :). Well, I like using old components when I collage. To me, the age adds an element of character that can't be duplicated or substituted by something new.



For this project, I've used:


~ pages from a falling apart, very old dictionary as the backdrop pasted onto a stretched canvas.


~ a page from a falling apart, very old photo album, probably from the victorian era, which otherwise would not have been purchased due to its condition.


~ color copies of the most beautiful old paper.


~ a vintage metal piece, I'm not quite sure what it is but loved it nonetheless.


~ old clock hands.


~ a copy of a gorgeous old botanical from a botany book I purchased.


~ and a simple branch wrapped in twine . . .



~ It measures 12" x 16" and is about 3/4" deep.


This is the first in a series I plan on doing. I want to make several for the antique store also. They will vary in content but will all have the same "feel." I'll put it in my etsy store and see how it does ~

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

xxoo, Dawn

Very pretty. Right up my alley. Hmmm- I have nothing to do today. I think a visit to the square is in order, so I can peruse things in person. :)
