Thanks guys, the background is just acrylics layered over some old sheet music and book pages.  The nest is just a cheapie from the craft store.  The white speckled paper is actually a graduation program from the 30's (I think) that has rotted so the pages stuck together.

I found the picture at websters flea market here in Florida, The background was gessoed, I slapped it on extra thick to make it textured, then used a rusting agent.  The quote is actually from a Sherlock Holmes book.  Thanks for all the wonderful comments guys!

This was made using acrylic paint, a rusting agent, and an old photo edged in metal.

The whole thing (true colors)

Best close up of picture I could get

Ripped effect

The text says "Maybe it was I that pulled the trigger.  Maybe we just jolted it off between us.  Anyhow, he got both barrels in the face."

Here is a piece I made for my friend Jeannie. 

A view of it all


Close up

This was made with found materials and acrylic paint.  The twine is held on by hinges that were screwed into the canvas, and there is a little thread spool strung between.
Hope you enjoy!

I love this, I think it's beautiful.  I love all your work though, so I may be partial!

I think you should take all those boxes and cut them into even rectanges (so they can fit upright into the bookshelf) then wrap your fabric around them and put them up like books on your bookshelf!  That's what I would do anyway....good luck!

Rather than comment on each of your dresses I thought I'd just put everything I wanted to say here... I was wondering where you've been, I used to look forward to all your posts, now you're back and I love EVERYTHING you've made so far!  You have great talent, and some killer legs!  You look beautiful in everything!  Smiley

You did a great job!  I love that notice that you left in there, I wish the fine was still only 2 cents a day!
