I just read about the potential to provide submissions to CHA through Craftster and thought, why not.  I recently made this assemblage piece with all kinds differnt recycled items, found objects and interesting craft supplies.  I was inspired by my vintage Spirofoil and score of watch parts.  When I posted this on my blog last month, I receieved the most hits I have had ever. I can't tell you how much that affirmed my creative spirit.  As a new altered artist it is so nice to gain feedback.

I love love love this.  I have looked at it several times and every time I see something different that I didn't see before.  I love things like that.  You have a new experience every time you view it.  Awesome.

Thanks for "rockin" my project, how sweet!  The flowers are made from Spirofoil.  It is a vintage craft supply I found at an antique show.  I have since discovered some similar craft foils on the market.  The flowers were cut with Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral die, colored with inks, embossed then assembled.  I do have mega details on my site about the project.

Again, thanks for showing me some love!
