Lost and Found

Hello all my crafting friends out there. In case you hadn't noticed,
it is now December, and we are in the countdown to the big day.

In my last post, I hinted that I would have something VERY different
to show you...Well, here it is......
I have become very interested in this form of mixed media, using 'found
objects', or what some people may call 'junk'. It is quite a departure from
my usual style, don't you think? My base canvas is quite large,
76cm x 52cm (30inches x 20inches).

You may want to make yourself a cup of tea or coffee, as my
post is quite photo heavy.

I used the fan from a computer, as well as 
many other electronic components.

When he stayed with us in July, our son gave me a big bag
of small-value coins he has collected over many years
on his travels around the world.

A lightening strike nearby 'killed' our phone recently,
so I dismantled it for useful bits and pieces.

Aluminium pie cases, and coffee pod filters are useful.

I cut lots of chipboard die-cuts and layered them for dimension.

Old belts with interesting buckles cannot escape!

There are approximately 20 items I made using silicone
molds, and paper clay. The large rose, the heart frame
and the little bird are just a few.

For added interest on the centre of my work, I used 
texture paste and stencils.

Media used :- Prima - Heavy Gesso Black
                       Prima - Art Alchemy Metallique Acrylic Paint Deep Water
                       Prima - Art Alchemy Opal Magic Wax Turquoise Satin
                       Jacquard - Lumiere Metallic Rust
                       Jacquard - Lumiere Metallic Bronze
                       Helmar - 450 Quick Dry Adhesive

This piece took about 6 weeks to create, as I am on an almost vertical learning curve, but in it's creation I learned so much. I have also decorated a couple of bottles and small canvases in a similar style...I will show them to you at a later date.

I have a very busy week ahead, as do probably most of you, so I will say "goodnight" and "thank you" for visiting.

Until next time,
Jennifer.  x
