Mixed Media Monday - Look What I Found
I chose "look what I found" as the theme on Mixed Media Monday this week because I thought it would be a fun and really open theme for people to participate in. Then I set to work using some of my favourite "found" items as an example piece. I have to admit that I didn't find the gorgeous aged tin I used - my daughter bought it for me in a little antiques shop, but it is just perfect. I used some papers and a chipboard bingo card for the backgrounds and worked out from there, adding a silver toned frame and key that I "aged". The embellishments are a vintage lace motif and buttons, some little flowers and a little "dream" button that I also aged. The bisque doll is another one from my collection of dolls from a bombed out factory in Germany - she is complete, if a little rusted :-) I have a bit of a crush on them at the moment! The tin is approximately 7 cm or 3 in square when closed.
