Left unsupervised..

that is my initial excuse for creating this altered photo.  Altered as I waited on glue to dry on a sign for my creation zone.. 

Used model paste on stencil then painted with Lumiere paint.  The wording is standard stickers with exception of MAGIC.  It is cut from old transparencies colored with alcohol ink. 

And yes, this is where it is - right next to the mannequin riding on the altered deer head.

Still wandering through possibilities.

Still haven't settled on next project.

So as I wander through my idea file, found the perfect quote to enhance this citra solv paper creation. Found quote a long time ago and do not know original source.

No assemblages...

In fact, boxed up supplies and cleaned up creation station.  Not totally done with making assemblages or planters just want to work on something else.  I keep an idea file (and there is always Pinterest) that I browse when I am in this mindset.  Snarky vintage photos made and posted on Facebook just for fun. 
When I wandered through idea file, found the phrase "reality has limits...imagination is boundless".  From there shuffled through old scans of citra solv papers and then "poof" ... this came into being.

Not sure what is next.  Plenty of supplies and time.  Waiting on inspiration.....

Snowy day project.

Assemblage using broken cage received from a friend.  Added a treasure chest complete with coin, bottles and jewels. A ladder along with additional metal leaves seemed to be the right addition.  All protected by gargoyle on the top and the spirit creature on the back.

This is the sum of...

... a vintage candy tin, spare jewelry pieces, glass buttons, bus tokens from Greensboro, drawer pulls (knife & fork), vintage office drawer pull, and tinkertoy pieces.




Voila.  création jaune.
            Yellow Creation.

Couldn't stop at just four assemblages..

...finished four more.  From Attendance Award (post cap on base that was an award for attendance),

to Mermaid (used window tassel tie back for hair and small ship wheel as part of base),

to pink bling woman (base is inverted candle holder)

and finally Butterfly Queen (base is glass honey bottle, hair is butterflies punched from papers and alcohol ink colored transparencies).

Not my circus, not my clown...

...oh, wait a minute.  It is my clown.  What started as a cabbage patch doll head, a few blocks, and a biscuit
tin is now a planter.  The eyes are glass eyes left from another project & the pink cheeks are buttons.
Added a small dog button on bottom just for the fun of it.
