My final project for my 3D Illustration class was to illustrate a news article about a housing crisis using found objects.  For the purpose of the project she said that materials from other projects could also be used and would be considered within the scope of the "found object" principle.  

I chose an article on the climbing foreclosure rates and I had a few ideas on how to use some things I had sitting around the house but Knickertwist's entry to the 36th Craftster Challenge (can be seen here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295017.0 ) gave me an additional idea and I ran with it.

I spent a LOT of time revising my found objects to the point that sometimes it wasn't clear what they were originally.  

Here it is:

And detail images:

*Outer Box - made from scrap lumber I picked out of my husband's workshop (and the woodshop at the school)

* Moon - two cheap, bendable plastic taco bowls with scrap balsa inside to hold the clockworks, a spray can lid holds the moon away from the background

*Clouds - scrap balsa & basswood

* Stars - glue-on sequins (painted of course)

* Flowers & Flower Leaves - Plastic beads

* "Flying" Dollar Sign - leftover sculpey, with a balsa base & paper & wire wings

* House - styrofoam base covered in scrap balsa & basswood, windows are paper & basswood & door handle is a leftover button

* Apple Tree/Bush - Scrap wire, plastic leaves & fruit from an OLD necklace from the 60's (it was so old that many of the plastic pieces crumbled as I tried to take the necklace apart).

* Grass - scrap outdoor carpet

* Fence - scrap balsa

* Guy - leftover sculpey & wire

I'm actually looking forward to using this as a clock in my workroom when I get it back.  I think it turned out pretty cool.

* Sign - cardstock, leftover basswood & chain from the fruit necklace

I like this! Even from the thumbnail it looks cool.

I have lots of white pillow feathers to get rid of. PM me if you are in Britain and would like some!
